Ayile Arnett is driving through North Memphis in her Chevy Trailblazer, making deliveries.
Google maps leads her to a modest home, where she retrieves a small cardboard box from her backseat containing a 90-day supply of prescription drugs.
Arnett introduces herself at the door. “Hi, my name is Ayile, and I have a medication drop-off [from] Good Shepherd,” which results in some initial confusion.
These packages usually come through the mail.
But today, Arnett is demonstrating a smartphone app she created to transport people and things at no cost.
“ScripRide is basically a platform that is similar to Uber or Lyft, except for we leverage the volunteer spirit of community members in different locations,” Arnett says.
