Texas Disability Attorney Sues 2 Rideshare App Companies

AUSTIN, Texas -- New ride hailing companies making their way into town haven't come without issues.

A disability rights Texas attorney filed two lawsuits Wednesday against Get Me and Fare for discriminating against those who are visually impaired.

He says the companies have refused to make their ridesharing phone apps accessible to riders who use text-to-speech software.

The suit claims Fare and Get Me's apps both have improper labeling and coding for text-to-speech software used by blind people.

However, Fasten, the leading rideshare company in the capital city, has included these features in its mobile app.
