TNC fight continues online

Monday, January 4, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Though City Council won’t meet again until the end of this month, as the Austin Monitor and others have reported, the debate about transportation network companies has continued, unabated by any holiday schedule. Over the weekend, the heated rhetoric continued, with the appearance of a questionably named “Rides Not Rape” Twitter account pushing a petition that supports the fingerprinting of TNC drivers in the city. The anonymous account had 19 followers at the time of publication and, according to a screen shot taken shortly after its creation, the first two followers were accounts run by Council Member Delia Garza of District 2.
