Palm Springs man says Uber driver cancelled pickup after seeing he had a walker

A Palm Springs man told KMIR that a recent Uber trip was cancelled after the driver saw that he had a walker.

Bryan Desimas informed the TV station he takes Uber and Lyft all the time and has never had an issue until now.

Desimas said, β€œI saw the look on his face, a weird look on his face and then he passed me up made a U-turn and turned down the street where he had come-up originally.”

He said there were no spoken words between him and the driver, but he said his facial expression said it all.

Desimas said, β€œHe looked at me and he looked directly at my walker and he turned around and left.”

KMIR contacted Uber about the story and shortly after Desimas received a phone call from their corporate offices to apologize.
