With San Antonio not budging on what ride-share companies describe as the toughest ordinance in the country, Windcrest, Alamo Heights, Olmos Park and Terrell Hills are stepping into the fray.

And they want Uber to stay.



At a press conference tomorrow, Windcrest Mayor Alan Baxter, Olmos Park Mayor Kenneth Farrimond and Alamo Heights Mayor Louis Cooper will announce their desire to keep the company operating within their respective communities.

Windcrest City Council will vote Wednesday evening on a resolution creating an agreement that would allow Uber to continue operating within its city limits. Olmos Park and Terrell Hills will do the same in April.

Terrell Hills Mayor Anne Ballantyne isn't attending, but will provide a statement of support.
