Over and Lyft still allow racist behavior, but not as much as taxi companies. Driver of driving service such as Uber and Lyft are discriminating against persons with a lower skin colour than taxiers. The " Ruidehail Travel and Equity in Los Angeles ", a thesis by Anne Brown, a PhD candidate in urban planning. It examines how L.A.

district inhabitants use carpooling and contains the results of an experimental study aimed at finding variations in the way carpoolers and taxi riders handle passenger from different racing events.

Huge RACISTIC TAXI. Brown sent 18 different race post-graduate Brown L.A. undergraduates to two places in L.A. to welcome trips, either from Lyft, Uber or a taxi company. For nine consecutive week in autumn 2017, drivers demanded 1,704 trips either from a carpool or taxi company.

Mr Brown found that blacks had to sit 1 min and 43 seconds longer than their whites for trips and were 4 per cent more likely than whites to have their racers cancelled on them. However, taxi driver discriminations were much more pronounced - taxi driver blacks had to spend six to 15 min longer waiting than their colleagues on journeys, and they were 73 per cent more likely than whites to have their driver canceled them.

"From a gender perspective, it is even more difficult to really bridge the driver -to-driver divide, but it is much tighter in terms of driving calls, and some political changes (Uber and Lyft) could completely eliminate the race divide between drivers," Brown said in June in the US TODAY. However, the size of Brown's survey was quite small - only one town with drivers of about the same ages - and other surveys of kidehailing applications in other towns came to the conclusion that race discriminatory is far more common than Brown's survey suggests.

Whatever are the most precise surveys, they all seem to notice some form of racist discriminations, and any racist discriminations are too much. Striving to balance the way the passenger is treated, Brown proposes that the Ride-Hailing applications reconsider the way they identified the passengers by removing the habit of taking the photograph and name of a passenger when they welcome a trip.

Meanwhile, Lyft and Uber have long claimed that the identification information is necessary to ensure the driver's security. If they don't get a different opinion, it seems that they will still be able to influence their own prejudices about how long it takes for them to get there - if they get there at all.
