RamRide has broken our trust

“We are entrusting a lot in our volunteers and we cannot be aware of where our drivers are at all times,” said RamRide Director Chelsey Green.

But the trust and forgiveness afforded to the most visible ASCSU organization has finally been shattered.

We put our trust in the volunteers at RamRide. We trust that they will get us home safe when we are incapable of doing so ourselves. We are trusting them not to speed, not to be drunk, not to be driving recklessly or indulging in any illicit substances. That’s what we expect of RamRide.
