We know that riders with disabilities face a variety of problems hailing taxicabs in the District, including discrimination from drivers who refuse to stop for individuals with disabilities. While these problems are not unique to Washington, there is more that can be done and Uber is proud to be part of the solution.
In DC we’ve seen first-hand the impact that our users’ voices can make. In the past month we’ve heard your voices call for greater reliability with low cost, high quality transportation options like uberX. Today, with the help of the DC Council, we’re increasing the supply of uberX vehicles on the road with ridesharing.
