Then they should spend the 2 minutes it takes to research/download Fasten and/or Ride Austin. Cheap rides, worked just as well as Uber/Lyft, no problems.

Nobody wants to download an app for every single city they visit. I visited a couple cities where I had to do that. Not everyone has the space for it on the phone. I am generally partial toward small local companies myself--not this case though.

I never updated this. The state legislature sometime in 2017 or early 2018 overruled Austin. We have Uber and Lyft back now. They basically adopted a state-wide regulatory system, which overruled all the cities.
