Lyft, Uber schedule meetings with Austin City Council members

Published on August 24, 2016 under CommunityImpact

Two ride-hailing companies that left Austin in May have attempted to reopen lines of communication with Austin city officials. District 10 Austin Council Member Sheri Gallo was scheduled to meet with the ride-hailing company Lyft on Monday, but company officials claim the meeting was canceled after Gallo suggested the presence of the company’s executive team was not necessary. Lyft, as well as its chief rival Uber, suspended operations in Austin following the city’s May passing of Proposition 1, which requires drivers of ride-hailing services to undergo fingerprint-based backgrounds checks.
