Uber has ride passes for Austin, Texas ( $5 fee to unlock flat-rate cost for 28 days, $2.99 uberPool or $6.99 uberX ). They offer a 84 day pass for a $15 fee as well.

They are available now.

** You might need an email invitation to accept the offer though (otherwise it will say "Austin passes are all out for now" ).

State regulations overrode local ones. Uber/Lyft came back on May 29th.

Oh, yes, Uber is back.

Lyft, too.

vomit

While they were gone, a number of other services sprang up. Many of us in Austin are on the #DeleteUber bandwagon; so, if you live here or visit, I encourage you to try the other services:
  • RideAustin (local non-profit, pays the drivers best)
  • Fasten
  • Wingz

Considering how little Uber pays drivers these days, good luck finding rides LMAO

There are a lot of stupid people out there that don't realize how little they'll be paid. Ride options and drivers will remain plentiful.

It's also available in Miami for $10 to get $5.99 UberX and $2.99 pool for 28 days. Limited areas though. I've done it for two months and about to start the third month.

I had zero issues using RideAustin and Fasten
I recall they were both better for everyone, from a financial perspective. The driver and the community

Uber (the company) is a bunch of scumbags.
