Transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft are revolutionizing the way we get around, but are they leaving riders with disabilities at the curb?

Jennifer Mendoza was walking through San Francisco and noticed a bunch of cars with pink mustaches. “I Googled, found out what Lyft was, and said, ‘I have got to be a part of that.’”
Chicago-based nonprofit Open Doors Organization has trained Uber drivers on how to serve riders with disabilities in 10 cities nationwide.
