Kimberly Alexander, a Fayetteville State alumna, saw the lack of safe and reliable transportation for children in Fayetteville and wanted to do something about it. She began YaNu Ridez, a kids taxi service, after trouble finding reliable shuttle service with individuals she trusted. With a bachelors in Psychology, and experience working with children with behavioral challenge, she decided to take her knowledge and experience with children and pour it into a safe service for them. YaNu Ridez currently offers shuttle rides to children up to 17 years old, on a one-time, daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

Kimberly turned to the Women’s Business Center of Fayetteville for help getting YaNu Ridez up and running. The Women’s Business Center helped her with financial information, marketing, and encouragement every step of the way.

So far, Kimberly has created three jobs, and hopes to add more vehicles to her fleet and franchise her name!
