Uber for Everyone
Getting around town has just gotten easier for those south of Austin. Uber launched service in San Marcos and Hays County on Friday.
The City of San Marcos granted Uber a permit to operate earlier this week. Sample fares from Uber show that residents can get from The Square to Bobcat Stadium for about $4. A ride from the Avenue Apartments near Texas State University to Sixth Street in Austin averages $13.
"While I have been pleased with the transportation options currently available to our citizens, additional options for our residents and visitors is not only a great idea, but one that contributes to our goal of reducing the number of intoxicated drivers on the streets," said San Marcos Police Chief Chase Stapp in a press release.
To celebrate, Uber is offering five free rides up to $20 in San Marcos between July 10-17. Us the code "SANMARVELOUS" to redeem.
