New ridesharing company hosts driver registration at Omni Austin Hotel

A new ridesharing company is here in Austin and it is looking for new drivers to support our area. 

Fasten, the new rideshare company in our area, will be hosting a "Driver Onboarding Event" at the Omni Austin hotel on Thursday, May 26, 2016 from 10 am until 8 pm. The hotel is located at 4140 Governors Row, Austin, Texas. 

Kirill Evdakov, the CEO of the company, and a team of driver support specialists will gather at the hotel for a real-time registration even during which they will introduce Fasten to Austin drivers, answer questions, and help drivers register on-site.

Fasten released the following statement:

"Fasten quickly arrived in Austin to rescue drivers and riders after Uber and Lyft halted service in early May following a legislative ruling that will require fingerprint-based background checks for drivers come 2017. Fasten aims to reemploy drivers and fill a consumer need, and is relentlessly committed to both rider and driver safety. Fasten encourages drivers and riders to choose Fasten first."
