Uber Driver Leaves Blind Woman With Service Dog Stranded

A few months ago, we told you how the California chapter of the National Federation of the Blind was suing ride-sharing service Uberfor discriminating against passengers with service dogs. The suit cited a number of incidences. In one, California UberX driver put a blind woman’s service dog in the trunk without her knowledge. In another, a driver sped off after slowing to pick up a man and his service dog, shouting “No dogs!” All told, the National Federation of the Blind said it knew of more than 30 instances where blind passengers were denied service.
