Disability Rights Groups Say Lyft Not Complying with the ADA

Many wheelchair users say they are not able to use Lyft because the ride-sharing company won’t make wheelchair accessible vehicles (or WAVs) available to passengers with nonfolding wheelchairs in areas outside where it is required by State law. Advocates are asking Lyft to help WAV drivers reach riders by allowing drivers to categorize their vehicles as WAVs and turn off any app blockers that would prevent riders from selecting the company’s accessible ride option in these non-access regions. Lyft officials said the company doesn't have to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act or cater to people with nonfolding wheelchairs.
