List Of Proposed Uber And Lyft Rules Gets Longer


KUT — In the midst of a heated debate about requirements for fingerprint background checks and fees for transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft, the City Council Mobility Committee has tossed a slew of additional proposals into the pot.

The committee recommended the Austin Transportation Department proposals to Council in front of a packed house at City Hall on Monday, amid jeers and cheers from those in the audience. Council Members Sheri Gallo, Delia Garza and Ann Kitchen supported the staff proposals while Council Member Don Zimmerman opposed them.
