Austin wants tighter regulations for Uber, Lyft

With many premium taxi providers like Uber and Lyft are now becoming quite popular to commuters, the Texas government – such as the Austin Transportation Department – is now considering imposing policies to regulate these taxis and protect its users.

The government recognizes that these premium taxes had allowed drivers to earn more and offer safe trips in the process. Currently, considerations of adding franchise keys and additional car markings are being considered by the Transportation Department to ensure that each taxi working for premium taxi providers are identified properly and easily spotted in case of emergencies or concerns.
