Advancing Arab-Jewish Partnership
Rectifying Taxi Discrimination
Three years ago, the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC) of the Reform Movement in Israel brought a huge class action lawsuit against the Gett Taxi app. The app had developed a service for Jerusalemites called Gett Mehadrin, which it began employing five years ago, which would, they said, allow (mainly) ultra-Orthodox users to ensure that their drivers were those who observed Shabbat. In practice, it allowed users to guarantee they would get a Jewish driver and discrimination against Arab ones.
