Massachusetts questions Uber & Lyft over disability access

Massachusetts has raised concerns over the efforts taken by ridesharing outfits like Uber and Lyft to accommodate disabled passengers.

It is learned that the state's Attorney General is questioning both Uber and Lyft over the levels of disability access they provide.

The state has not taken any action so far over this matter but the development is significant as no US attorney general's office has taken a look at accessibility so far.

The grilling is set to make the two companies nervous when both of them are facing lawsuits over their support for guide dogs and wheelchairs.

For its part, Uber says it both talks to lawmakers about accessibility and has a team "dedicated" to improving access.

If Massachusetts decides to ask Uber and Lyft for changes, it is likely that it'll get at least some concessions rather than face a legal battle.
