As Tampa Police continue to search for the person of interest in the Seminole Heights Murders, it's the bus stops where people feel the most vulnerable, a place where we know at least two of the three victims were targeted.

But now there's a new way to get around town, a way most of us order on our phone, but this ride is free.


Tracy Wells is a Lyft driver and she's giving away her Lyfts to the people who could really use one.

"I come over in the areas and just see if there’s anyone at the bus stops. I’ll ask them if they would like me to pick them up and then I don’t charge them for the ride," she says. "There’s so much negativity in the world, I mean it’s just negative and I want to do something positive."

But it's not just Tracy driving the streets of Seminole Heights, her husband Telly is an Uber Driver and he's giving out free rides too.

"I’m always on guard at night, because I’d rather her do days where she’s okay and I’ll take the nights. I’d rather see a person wake up and see another day that’ll make me happy right there," he says.
