Ridesharing companies fighting tighter regulations in Austin

Wednesday, Uber, Lyft, taxis and the Austin Transportation Department battled it out at City Hall and the fight over proposed regulations for transportation network companies is far from over.

It seems like neither side is happy with the proposed regulations. Uber and Lyft are asking not to have their drivers held to the same regulations as taxi drivers.  While taxi drivers are asking that those companies be regulated even more than is being proposed.

For 10 months ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft have been operating legally in Austin.
