Last week, a Bay Area advocacy group filed a class action lawsuit against Uber Technologies Inc., claiming the ride-hailing company discriminated against wheelchair users. The suit, filed by Disability Rights Advocates, argues that those in wheelchairs who use San Francisco-based Uber’s services don’t receive the same access as others, because they allegedly face much longer wait times and are often told no accessible vehicles are available.
