RE: Uber and Lyft Shrug
Uber and Lyft have already spent the most crucial capital in developing the software and business model. They don't invest in depreciating assets like vehicles or risk too many hr type things with personnel. So the capital invested in any city is minimal. Plus knowledge of such services is already pretty big so it isn't like extensive marketing is required.

So it was no big deal to move. And it wasn't like them leaving prevents them from ever coming back. They know what is expected if they want to operate now. And they don't want to incur the cost or responsibility. But when enough people complain. They can come back on their own terms or never.

I imagine when they set parameters for cities to expand to they had population, taxi rate use etc. and screened. I get the sense there are plenty of cities they can go to still. They can hit Austin later.
