Austin City Council Approves Resolution To Help TNCs

Posted on May 24, 2016

Austin City Council approved a resolution that calls on the city manager to do four things to help expand the TNCs that are still there and help the ones that want to come to the city.

City Manager Marc Ott was directed to expedite the application for the driver-owned taxi franchise ATX Coop Taxi, talk with TNCs and those wanting to come to Austin to determine what obstacles are impeding their ability to meet demand, look for city resources, processes and policies that would allow the smaller companies to expand quickly and let the TNCs know about economic development resources that can help them.

Council Member Ellen Troxclair from District 8 voted against the resolution, saying there are other issues the city needs to address with TNCs.
