It has been a struggle.  Finding a wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) from ride services like Lyft and Uber has been difficult to put it lightly.  In 2017 New York Lawyers For The Public Interest did a study on how successful Uber and Lyft are providing WAV’s to waiting riders. The results were so bad that the Equal Rights Center filed a lawsuit against Uber in the same year.  But slowly, things are turning around. Check out this story from Disability Scoop.  The battle for equal rights continues.
