I think this was handled in intirely wrong way. If the driver stated his
problem and offered to get another car there then both parties needs could
have been met. The driver or his famly could be extreamly lergic. The
driver was intirely wrong in handling it in the way he did.
In this problem we must be carefull that all needs are met.

His daughter is allergic to dogs, so he didn't want to allow a service dog
in his vehicle.
We have all heard stories of drivers refusing service to dog handling teams
on the grounds they are allergic or fear dogs. But Uber introduces a new
wrinkle into this battle. Since they use their own private cars, they can
claim that relatives are allergic to dogs to refuse service.
This is not something to be overlooked in light of the proposed settlement
with Uber now pending in the court.
