Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) and Disabled Access

What are transportation options for people with disabilities in San Francisco and how have these options been impacted by TNCs?

Key findings

"TNC operations exhibit several roadway conflicts that pose considerable safety risks for older adults and persons with disabilities, who are at higher risk of death from traffic-related injuries."

While many TNC's have articulated visions and values that include access for everyone, their efforts to provide equitable service have not been afforded equally to all riders with disabilities, such as wheelchair accessible transportation.

"For TNCs to meet the SFMTA’s goals of equity, accessibility and affordability, they must be inclusive of all persons with disabilities."
