New ridesharing alternative in Austin

See this article. See, the sharing economy can actually be about sharing without a giant capitalistic corporation being the reigning paradigm. A teaser excerpt:

"Austin demonstrates how the sudden loss of an unregulated would-be monopoly (or an Uber, Lyft duopoly in this case) can create an opportunity for people to re-imagine how these services can be better designed and governed to serve the public. It's also a case study in how cities can encourage city-scale enterprises to be democratically-owned and operated by locals for locals, ensuring that the public interest comes before shareholders' interests."
