TNC Service Requirements, Austin, Texas, 2015

  • Date Enacted: Feb 1, 2016


In December 2015, Austin’s city council passed an ordinance amending its previous requirements for TNC operations within the city.  Among the regulations outlined in the ordinance was a requirement that TNC drivers pass a driver history check and a fingerprint-based criminal background check.  As a result of the ordinance both Lyft and Uber ceased operations in Austin in May 2016.

This ordinance replaces the previous Austin TNC ordinance.
