Triton taxi provides valuable border serivce

While Triton Taxi will continue to provide useful free rides from downtown San Diego, Pacific Beach and the SDSU area to UCSD, Tijuana remains the hardest destination to find reliable transportation. It is unfortunate that the A.S. Office of Student Services signed the Cloud 9 contract knowing it would mean an end to this feature of the program.

If Cloud 9 will not be swayed and a different taxi company is needed to ensure the border rides, Commissioner of Student Services Kelly Vasant should work to switch to a new company as soon as possible. It is necessary to provide students with the assurance of a safe ride home that previous classes have had. Paying a little more for a taxi service to cover the border is worth that peace of mind.
