As a woman who is blind and who uses a Guide Dog, I hope the new taxi companies wanting to operate in Mt. View realize that it is illegal to refuse a Guide Dog. I have been left waiting for a ride for hours by the two existing companies because of having a Guide Dog. Checker also ask if I have a Guide Dog when I call for a ride because the drivers have reported that I do and this is also illegal. I am hoping that service improves for all Mt. View residents.
