A disability mandate to shut down ride-sharing?

“The suit, filed by three mobility-impaired plaintiffs from San Antonio and Houston, claims that Uber and Lyft have violated the Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA, by failing to provide a way for wheelchair users to take advantage of their services.” [Ted Troutman, Next City] Both services serve as intermediaries for users to offer rides in their vehicles.

The ADA has become simply a rent-creating law…..since most of us are now considered disabled under the ADAAA, all business is a target. The big guys can handle the compliance requirements and the random regulatory fines. The small guys, those that deliver innovation and competition cannot.
