Let Philly Ride: Stop Uber's discrimination

Mayor Kenney and City Council

Uber's ride-hailing service UberX discriminates by refusing rides to people in wheelchairs, people with service animals—even pregnant women in labor!

Please add your name to our petition:

To make ride-hailing fairer and safer, Mayor Kenney and City Council must stop the discrimination and require Uber to follow the law.

In California, an UberX driver put a service dog in the trunk—and refused to let the dog out when the blind passenger objected.

In New York, a pregnant woman and her husband were left on the sidewalk when an UberX driver refused to drive them three miles to the hospital—because she was in labor.

In Philly, UberX is operating illegally, with no protections for riders or drivers. Unlike taxis, UberX isn't required to be wheelchair-accessible or take service animals. If you get into an accident with an UberX, you may not be covered by insurance. And UberX drivers don't have the legal right to organize for decent pay and working conditions.

Nationally, Uber is brushing off numerous discrimination lawsuits by claiming the Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply to them. This is a fight for our civil rights.

Mayor Kenney and City Council must stop the discrimination and require Uber to follow the law.
