Riders Sue Transport Company

See this article by that title. Although it's not technically about a "suit," close enough. It begins:

Disabled Alachua County residents have filed a civil rights complaint against the company that local governments have charged with providing them with transportation.

The complaint, filed with the Federal Transit Administration against MV Transportation at the end of October, argues that the company's problems providing rides at scheduled times, taking reservations and keeping up its vehicles cause serious issues for disabled riders and amount to a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

"Why as a transportation company do they have a problem with the wrong location, the wrong day or the wrong time?" asked Joan DeNicola, a board member of the Gainesville chapter of the National Federation for the Blind, which filed the complaint.
