    As per the Uber operations playbook

    Uber and Lyft both announced that they will depart Austin, Tex. after the city voted against a proposition that would have allowed ride-sharing companies to use their own background check systems. The Texas city will require fingerprint background checks in the future.

    The two companies spent more than $8 million inundating locals with ads, phone calls, texts, and mail in hopes of passing Proposition 1. But in the end, 56% of Austin voters said no to the companies regulating themselves.
