GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota students who depend on a taxi service that is subsidized by student fees are having trouble hailing a cab.

The so-called Cab Crawler service has been put on hold because of a change of ownership and mechanical problems with the company's fleet.

Students pay $2 or $3 for rides. Logan Fletcher, UND student body president, says many students rely on the service, including for sober rides home.

Fletcher says students are paying for the program and deserve good service.

Paul Balstad, the new owner of Red White and Blue Taxi Co., tells the Grand Forks Herald that service is temporarily suspended so issues can be being ironed out.
