Oh, did they leave for some reason or something?
Friday, May 26, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
After all the hours spent haggling over fingerprints, millions spent campaigning and votes cast by Austinites, two tweets confirmed that after just over a year in exile, Uber and Lyft are returning to Austin Monday. Also on Monday, Gov. Greg Abbott is expected to sign into law new rules that allow the transportation network companies to operate in Austin under conditions they agree to.
See ya Monday 😊
