Austin is fine without Uber and Lyft… until it isn’t

Using a clickbait headline, TechCrunch reveals that Austin, Texas is doing just fine without the predatory companies Uber and Lyft.

The only time there has been an issue is when the servers running behind the scenes for the Austin-specific rideshare apps were overloaded.

The lesson isn’t that Uber amd Lyft do technology better and have the best uptime, the lesson is that rideshare apps should band together and share their tech and techniques. It benefits no one when all servers for rideshare are overloaded.

I’m hoping to see rideshare server technology like LibreTaxi to take off to make it even easier for cooperative rideshare companies to launch and oprate.
