WASHINGTON (WUSA9) – An Uber driver in Washington, D.C. refused to transport a blind passenger because she travels with a guide dog. The incident was caught on camera.

The Uber driver called Kristin Fleschner offensive names. All because he didn’t want to transport the blind lawyer’s guide dog, named Zoe.

In just the last three weeks, Kristin and Zoe have been denied Uber rides in the D.C. area 10 times.

A denied Uber ride is just one of many barriers Kristin and Zoe must overcome every day. To witness the barriers, watch the news report from wusa:
