JOINS VOTE FOR PROP 1
VOLUNTEER TO KEEP SUPPORTING RIDESHARING
POLITICAL ADVERTISING PAID FOR BY RIDESHARING WORKS FOR AUSTIN
Are you willing to get involved? We need everyone’s support to keep Austin moving safely. There are many ways you can help.
“I have been a strong proponent of public safety and economic opportunity during my time in public service. The rules that I and the City Council put in place in 2014 allowed for companies like Uber and Lyft to operate with stringent background checks while helping to reduce DWI accidents and providing safe, reliable rides for Austinites. On May 7th, I hope all Austin voters will join me in supporting Proposition 1.”
— Former Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell,
Chairman of Effort to Preserve Ridesharing in Austin
We are disappointed that after two years of providing safe, reliable rides to Austinites with ridesharing, the city will be taking over background checks without a plan or a budget. Here’s why Austin needs ridesharing:
Ridesharing helps prevent drunk driving in Austin. According to the Travis County Sheriff, DWI collisions decreased by 23% in 2014 compared to the year before. Voting FOR Prop 1 keeps the same safety rules that have been in place for the past two years, including requirements that drivers undergo national, criminal background checks.
From seniors to students, ridesharing gives Austinites access to easy, affordable transportation at all hours at the touch of a button. It’s also created jobs for 10,000+ locals.
Ridesharing is a trustworthy option for Austinites, no matter where they need to go – whether it’s to the doctor’s office or home after a night out. Before riders step into the car, they have their driver’s name, photo, and license plate number. They can also share their ride with friends and family in real time.
THANK YOU AUSTIN FOR YOUR SUPPORT
You can vote at any polling location convenient for you.
While we are disappointed that Prop 1 did not pass, we are thankful for the support of tens of thousands of Austinites who came together to support safe, reliable transportation. Many are counting on us, and we won’t stop fighting to bring ridesharing back to Austin.
