Uber and Lyft suspended service inside Austin because voters rejected Proposition 1, which would have repealed some city rules for drivers employed by ride-hailing companies. Here are 5 alternate apps Austinites can use to get around:
> RideAustin: Developing a community asset
Ridesharing saves lives, empowers drivers & riders and is part of any transportation future. Designed by local engineers. Your community working day and night to provide a great solution. Giving back to local charities.
Choose to automatically round up your fares and donate the proceeds to your local charity.
> GetMe: The company’s representatives have repeatedly said they would continue to operate in Austin no matter the outcome of the election. It works like Uber and Lyft, but with a much smaller fleet of drivers.
> Wingz: On Monday, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport announced a partnership with the smartphone app Wingz. The app offers rides to and from the airport. In addition to users’ location and destination, Wingz also requests their flight details.
> CapMetro: People can use the city’s app to figure out the best bus or rail line to get to their destination. Users can also purchase a bus pass (for one day, seven days or 31 days) with a credit card or PayPal through the app if they choose. To use the app, enter your location, your destination, how far you’re willing to walk, and what time you need to leave or arrive.
> Hailacab: Yellow Cab has an app with an interface similar to Uber’s and Lyft’s. To have a taxi come to your location, hit the “Book Taxi” button, and you can watch your taxi driver head your way. Adjust the settings at the top of the screen to change the “cash” option to “credit” request, book a taxi at a different day or time, or request a specific type of vehicle.
> Car2go: This option will take a few days between the time you sign up and when you are approved. This company offers registered users the ability to take one of the available car2go Smart Cars scattered throughout the city. There is a one-time sign up fee of $35, and car2go charges users 41 cents per minute.
> zTrip: This is an app that lets you book a black car or taxi, from services like 10/10 Taxi, SuperShuttle of Austin, and ExecuCar of Austin.

Before check in or at check in City of Austin Occupancy Taxes will be collected. They are 15% of the booking.
Consisting of: The City of Austin’s Hotel Occupancy Tax rate is 9 percent, comprised of a 7 percent occupancy tax and an additional 2 percent venue project tax. Texas law requires that each bill or other receipt for a hotel charge subject to the tax imposed for a venue project contain a statement in a conspicuous location stating: “The City of Austin requires that an additional tax of two percent (2%) be imposed on each hotel charge for the purpose of financing a venue project.”
The City’s tax is in addition to the 6 percent rate imposed by the State of Texas, which must be remitted separately to the State.
