Can I take my dog with me as an Uber driver, in the car, if she was enclosed in the back area of my van and not able to see the passengers?

           NOTICE: This animal is my service animal and we are protected under these laws.

    • Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (also known as the Rehab Act)

          Thank you for understanding.

    If anyone wants to get topsy-turvy after you've told them all that. End the ride and put them out and send a message to Uber about the rider violating the service animal laws. Thanks for your upvote.

    Dogs are man's best friends.  Hence "friends."
