A lawsuit filed by a pet transport company against Uber and Lyft alleges the companies are violating Florida law by failing to provide adequate information about their vehicles, which include the drivers’ names, dates of birth, gender and other identifying information.
In its complaint filed in a federal court in Miami, the pet transport business group alleges Uber and its subsidiaries fail to disclose the vehicles’ actual locations to customers.
Uber spokeswoman Andrea Perna said in a statement that the company has taken additional steps to improve its disclosure practices.
“We are committed to ensuring that all vehicles meet our standards and meet our customers’ expectations,” Pernab said.
Lyft spokeswoman Andrea Fauci said in an email that the ride-hailing company is committed to making its cars as accessible as possible to customers and that it will take additional steps in order to comply with Florida’s law.
The lawsuit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Florida.
