Austin Rideshare Companies
Since the departure of Uber and Lyft in the city of Austin earlier this summer, we thought we might see some challenges with other rideshare companies. So far, it’s been a smooth ride. Check out this list of Austin Rideshare Companies we’ve comprised with the latest transportation options.
Initially launched as an on-demand service to get to the airport, they have now expanded to a more traditional ridesharing company with flat-rate fares. Drivers undergo background checks and prices will never increase.
zTrip is more of a service, letting traditional taxi and chauffer companies add ride-sharing abilities without having their own app. You have the ability to book a ride in advance without surge pricing.
Great way to take the stress out of traveling. With Fare, you can schedule a ride up to 7 days in advance with no price surging. You can even choose a preferred driver without changing prices.
One of the oldest competitors of Uber and Lyft, GetMe started out as a concierge-style retail delivery service. They’ve since expanded offering rides with a motto of “Get Me somewhere or something.” They offer numerous ride options from a motorcycle to limo. Drivers go through an extensive background check and interview process.
Fasten improves ridesharing by putting fairness and transparency before profits. Fasten is known for its bargain-basement fares-no price surging. Drivers are screened through federal and national records.
This non-profit service has now expanded to cover the entire greater Austin area. Riders can choose a charity and proceeds from the ride will be donated by RideAustin. Drivers follow fingerprinting guidelines.
InstaRyde is a peer to peer on-demand ride sharing company that provides a safe, reliable, and affordable ryde. Drivers undergo a background check and there is no surge pricing.
Neither are operating within the Austin city limits but can pick and drop off in the surrounding areas. You can also use Uber or Lyft to get to the airport as long as your pickup is outside city limits.
