5 minutes Date Enacted: Jun 1, 2016
With stringent local legislation pushing Uber and Lyft out of Austin, Ride Austin looked to provide the same service, but operating as a non-profit to increase accessibility for all Austinites. Ride Austin’s nonprofit status allows them to offer lower prices for their users while also adding additional features such as the ability for users to round their fare up to the nearest dollar and donate the different to a local charity.
