7 Rideshare Options In Austin, Texas

Proposition 1 failed, leaving Austinites without a reliable on-demand ride and the chance to casually toss out the phrase “oh just Uber it.” Lyft, is no longer in Austin, either. Here's what Austin offers:


Check out the apps and find the best one for you!

1) FASTEN* - Supposedly the cheapest. 

2) FARE - Earn FREE rides credits with referrals.

3) GET ME - Been in Austin the longest and they fingerprint drivers.

4) RIDE AUSTIN - You can round up the price, for a charity of choice.

5) InstaRyde - When requests are low, Platinum drivers roll into the pool for the same price.
