Nearby cities fight for Uber, Lyft

SAN ANTONIO – The City of San Antonio told Uber on Tuesday night that it cannot operate on city streets, but neighboring towns said they're working to keep the ride-share company in business.

This month city officials signed off on an ordinance requiring drivers to be permitted to operate in the Alamo City.

Therefore, if a passenger is picked up in nearby cities, Uber can't use San Antonio streets to reach their final destination.

Mayors of Windcrest, Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills and Olmos Park are fighting back.

An announcement will be made Wednesday stating their communities will work on keeping companies like Uber and Lyft in business.

Windcrest council members are expected to vote on a resolution Wednesday night.
