Lynkup Taxi Services is determined to help the community in any way that we can. According to State and federal law, driver-partners using the Lynkup Taxi Services Driver App are prohibited from denying service to riders with service animals because of the service animals, and from otherwise discriminating against riders with service animals. It is not the company’s policy to discriminate in any way, form or fashion. Based on Lynkup Taxi Services’ Non-Discrimination Policy, driver-partners who engage in discriminatory conduct are in strict violation of this legal obligation will lose their privilege of the use of the Driver App.
Our definition of a Service Animal
A service animal is an animal that is trained to assist, work, and or perform certain tasks for an individual with a disability. A driver is in breach of the law if he or she requests that the rider presents any or all documentation proving that the rider’s animal is a service animal. In compliance with the law, there are only two questions that a driver-partner may ask to confirm that a rider’s animal is a service animal: (1) Is the animal required because of a disability? And, (2) What work or task has the animal been trained to perform? The driver-partner may not request that the rider present documentation proving that the rider’s animal is a service animal.
