Yalies buddy up

Earlier this month, Yale University undergraduate Evan Lee launched a mobile app, called RideBuddies, that makes it easier for Yalies to share an Uber or Lyft when traveling between the university and several nearby airports in Hartford and New York City. The app provides anyone with a Yale-controlled Google account a simpler alternative to the posts already shared on Facebook and GroupMe where people are looking for someone with whom to share a ride fare. Lee worked with the Yale Entrepreneurial Society Incubator program to develop the app, which is currently available on the Apple App Store.
