American Taxi vouchers are now available to all BenU students, staff and faculty members for half- price. Vouchers may be purchased with cash only in Student Services.

American Taxi Dispatch, Inc. is a service which includes their own vehicles and insurance policies. The company has no liability for the actions of the passengers who subscribe to the service. They provide their services to the entire Chicagoland area, providing flat rates for rides to and from the suburbs, airports, and downtown Chicago, according to the American Taxi website.

“This is great for residents looking to get off campus,” said BenU Residential Assistant Ken West. “It is a great way to do so aside from paying [full price] for an Uber.”
