Herd Hauler Program Changes Cab Companies

Students looking for a cab after a night at the bars should look for F-M Taxi cabs instead of Doyle’s if they want half off their fare.

The Herd Hauler program, which offers North Dakota State students a special sticker on their Bison ID card, will continue but with a different cab company.

“Doyle’s was unable, for business reasons, to continue,” said Noah Engels, the executive commissioner of academic and student affairs.

The contract Doyle’s had with NDSU expired in May, but Engels said the student government wanted to continue the program.

A new contract with F-M Taxi was signed and will begin offering rides to students who have a sticker from the student government office in the Memorial Union.

The program will cost the student government about $20,000.

Engels said F-M Taxi was worried about students not understanding the rules of the sticker and its limitations.

To address those concerns, when students are given the sticker they will also be given a brochure with the details of the program.
