    Sorry but no car available does not work in paratransit. Uber is trying to do wheel chair in LA only problem is at 10 times regulator rates. Almost, 90 percent of disabled are unemployed. Another Sexual assault reported in chicago today. How in the hell would you manage a paratransit system with a five star app and taking no responsibility for passengers or drivers? This dog and pony show should have died before the last round of capital was put in by the same guys who funded the last tech bubble. Hopefully the shine will come off before real transportation companies are bankrupted.
