Student Groups


Bulldog Taxi has made some major changes to its program, begining February 7th these changes will go into effect.

  • For the remainder of the year you do not need a Bulldog Taxi Card, instead you need your student ID.
  • The program will no longer be serviced by Bayside Taxi; instead students can call Custom Cabs and Yellor Door Taxi for service.
  • The deal now riders will pay 50% of the fare, so the more people in a taxi the less each person will have to pay! Just make sure to keep giving the drivers a Tip!
  • For more informationcheck out the facebook page.
