Collecting data on Uber incidents nationwide


Someone from National Federation for the Blind reached out to me based upon my stories about Uber discriminating against me. 

This morning I spoke with a paralegal for the lawyer on the case where NFB is suing Uber for discrimination against users with service dogs. At this point, the purpose is solely to collect information showing that ride sharing services (Uber, Lyft, etc) are discriminating all over the nation. Therefore, they asked that any service dog handlers that have experienced discrimination because of their service dog contact them so they can just collect the data.

Thank you.

  1. Good luck. Here in NYC also took a law suite for the taxi limousine commission to update their policies fo service dogs. Ths includes taxis and limousines. Not sure how uber and others operate.
