Getting around Austin

No Uber or Lyft, but we have many quality alternatives:

  • Fasten - Ride sharing
  • FARE - Ride sharing
  • Ride Austin - Non-profit Ride Sharing app that benefits local charities. Not the best UX historically, but definitely a good cause.
  • AustinCab - (512) 478-2222
  • Car2go - rent a small car, on-street parking costs you nothing!
  • Austin BCycle - rent a bike and return it to any of the 40 stations. Great option for getting around downtown.
  • Use Google Maps to find Buses, use Cap Metro App to buy tickets. Buses also take exact change (bills/coins).

Thanks to the fine folks at AustinClojure for compiling this list.
