Talk about rags to riches. 

After a summer of transportation network deprivation, Uber and Lyft are once again fully operational in the Alamo City. And now a third rideshare company claims it will operate in San Antonio early next year.



Get Me, a “personal ride and delivery service,” will operate in San Antonio starting on January 14, according to its Twitter profile. The news was first reported by the San Antonio Business Journal.

Get Me is a cross between traditional rideshare companies such as Uber or Lyft and errand-performers like Favor or Postmates. The app allows you to either request a ride somewhere, or have something delivered to you.

It calculates how much to charge for deliveries based on the distance between your location and your requested item. A delivery starts at $15 for 5 miles, and can cost as much as $55 for any distance 25 miles or longer.

Get Me is currently operational in Las Vegas, Houston, Austin and Dallas, where it’s based. The startup also plans to expand to Atlanta in January.
