Fear of catching the coronavirus has some cabbies and ride-share drivers discriminating against customers.
“I feel bad about it, but when I see Chinese passengers, I just go,” one cab driver — who asked that his name be withheld, lest his hack license get suspended — told The Post. “I don’t pick up anyone Chinese. I’m scared. I don’t want to get the disease.”
According to Uber’s website, “Any rider or driver found to have [discriminated based on national origin among other qualities] will lose access to the platform.” As for Lyft, an email from the press department stated: “Discrimination against riders or drivers can and has led to deactivation.”
