San Diego students start service to pay for Uber/Lyfts for Asian women and seniors

The movement to help Asians with their free and safe ride is spreading in San Diego. This week two college students started San Diego Cabbie, a service that covers up to a $30 Uber or Lyft ride for Asian women and seniors. With the rise in attacks against Asian American, especially the elderly, Sydney Trieu and Paul Lim wanted to help their community, so they won’t have to take public transportation in fear or walk alone. “A lot of our family and friends are here and we want to make sure Asian communities are safe in San Diego,” said Sydney Trieu, San Diego Cabbie co-founder. She is a sophomore at UC Riverside and her partner Paul Lim, a sophomore at Emory University in Atlanta, both are 2019 Del Norte High Schools alumnus. They were inspired by Cafe Maddy in New York City and Compassion Oakland, who are giving rides or covering rideshare fares for Asian Americans. View the complete story here:
