I thought the advantage of using Uber is that we don't have to tip.

NEW YORK - The city's Taxi and Limousine Commission wants Uber to require tipping as an option for all rides.
The TLC says a gratuity option on the ridesharing app would help protect the rights of Uber drivers, who complain about declining wages.
Officials say tipping would also improve transparency for drivers to see how their paychecks are calculated.
The move was prompted after the TLC says it received a petition with more 11,000 signatures of Uber drivers who wanted a tipping option.
The commission plans to draft a proposal in the next few months and let the public weigh in on the plan before a vote is held.
Uber says it looks forward to reviewing the proposal and improving their drivers' work conditions. http://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/n ... 7/04/17/uber-tipping.html
