The Austin Transportation Department (ATD) will begin accepting Taxi Franchise applications in order to pursue creation of a fourth taxi franchise in Austin.
Last year, the Austin City Council approved Resolution No. 20150521-034 directing the City Manager to create a process to establish a driver-owned taxi franchise, modeled after a co-op. The fourth-franchise is intended to give the taxi drivers more control of their work, rather than a corporate owner.
Applications will be accepted beginning at 8 a.m. CST, Monday, Feb. 8, 2016 and ending at 5 p.m. CST, Monday, March 7, 2016. Applicants must submit the original application plus three copies in person to the City Clerk’s Office, located at City Hall (301 W. 2nd Street, Austin TX 78703).
Potential applicants may contact Carlton Thomas for more information.
