Our Mother's Day weekend in Austin started out great - family and friend rides, great weather, music and more. But it ended with Uber and Lyft leaving Austin due to disagreements with the city. Now what! Lucky for us, in the Austin entrepreneurial spirit, many new ride sharing companies popped up. Initially it was a rough start - apps not updating properly, long wait times, etc, but now that we are 3+ months in without Uber and Lyft things have gotten much better.
RideAustin is billing itself as "a non-profit rideshare service created by the Austin community."
