Uber will not provide services in San Antonio

Uber will not be able to operate on streets of San Antonio, according to city official. But Mayors of Windcrest, Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills and Olmos Park said that they are working to keep Uber and other ride-sharing companies in business.

According to reports, Windcrest Council members could vote on a resolution Wednesday night. If the Ordinance is passed, it will allow the transport companies like Uber to continue providing their services in that San Antonio suburb.

Olmos Park and Terrell Hills city officials have planned to consider similar resolutions in April.

The mayors’ decision to convince Uber to continue providing ride-sharing services in their respective communities came when the company stated that it has planned to depart San Antonio if the city does not cancel a revised ordinance.

Earlier, San Antonio’s City Council voted 8-2 to approve a number of changes to an ordinance which was approved in December. The revisions were not enough to sway Uber to stay. Uber spokeswoman Debbee Hancock said, “We will not be able to operate within San Antonio’s city limits when this ordinance is implemented”.

Hancock also confirmed that the ride-sharing company has planned to exit the Alamo City. She further added that the revised ordinance remains one of the most burdensome in the nation.
