For-profit company Buzz Rides receives $15,000 in student fees

In a precedent-setting move, the Student Safety and Security Committee granted $15,000 in student fees to Buzz Rides — the for-profit taxi service founded by UNC students last year.  The grant was approved by members of University council Tuesday after being passed in a committee meeting on May 6.  The money was officially given to the Campus Y, which will provide oversight to how Buzz Rides uses the money.
