This app is an Uber-type of service for college students. Starting at a $1, a customer can get a ride anywhere around campus and the surrounding area, co-founder Jabari Sills, 26, said. Now in its beta phase, the app serves students at Rutgers University in New Jersey, and Sills said he got the idea for the app to keep college kids safe out on late nights.
“A lot of students died from drinking and driving this year, so we wanted to create a service that not only the students liked, but that their parents would want them to have. You would want your daughter to have ‘Youii.’”
Sills said the app has created job opportunities for young people, and the majority of “Youii” drivers are also college students too and are heavily vetted before they get behind the wheel.
