I'll preface this by saying that tipping is always voluntary though customary for many services.

Uber has not been transparent about tipping and led customers to believe that a tip was included in the fare. It took me a year for me to realize this wasn't true -- a driver had a sign in the back seat that tipping is appreciated. That led to a discussion and to my awareness that the tip is not included. I am totally with the Uber drivers with adding a page to the app for a tip, just like Lyft. Under the present system, a tip can only be left in cash.

TLC Could Soon Force Uber to Provide Tipping Option

By NY1 News
Monday, April 17, 2017 at 01:35 PM EDT

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.

Surging when you need it? That's the point.

Without demand-based pricing, you won't have a car when you need it, either.

Nah... Uber is playing the long game. They can afford to operate at a loss because of their very deep pockets that have benefitted from massive capital backing. They will continue to push into the autonomous car segment pushing research and innovation, while also battling Lyft and other competitors. Amazon ran major deficits for well over a decade, almost 20 years really, and it has done just fine.


That's Amazon, but Uber will go bankrupt. The investors will get screwed but the people who run the company won't as they are setting this to happen so that the company goes under, eliminates its debts, then they buy back the stock at a low price, and Uber is then bought by another company and moves into driveless cars. Oh thanks to all you who tip, since you will get 5 stars from the drivers it's always faster for you to get a ride due to your customer rating.


Oh, yeah... I forgot you are the former Uber driver with an axe to grind.

Nice (conspiracy) theory you got there, buddy. Despite the fantasy you are selling here, the story behind Uber and its cash reserves is well documented. With over $15 billion cash on hand, they can continue to lose 3 - 4 billion a year and make it past 2020 without problems.

NY Times article on their cash reserves and future plans: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/21/bus ... eps-raising-billions.html


You're citing the NY Times? LoL! Look at this fine piece by them.

You cite the Washington Post and then poke fun a NY Times for overestimating Hillary Clinton.
Yet, the Washington Post also overestimated in favor of Hillary by similar margin.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make. Do you not believe that many companies favor growth over profit, as part of their strategy??

Yes I have noticed the sudden increase in traffic too. It really occurred the last 2 months. In the past I could roughly correlate this to the economy (1998-1999 and 2006-2007 were the most congested) but this year I am not sure.

But cheap asses like you would ride with Charles Manson himself if it meant you got a cheap ride. I wonder when Uber is going to get rid of the subsidies they are currently offering to drivers during rush hour, $2.40 for a fare with a subsidy is ridicoulous and without it not even ex convicts will drive for that.

I've noticed a ton of traffic the last few months but I'm going with that there is just a ton of construction going on, drivers are taking others routes to avoid congestion, skyway, 139, etc.

the mobile WAZE app helps!

Do you tip your gas station attendant? Your cashier?

Why not? Can't afford it?

Yer goddam right, I almost always give those poor bastards a dollar with my credit car when I fill up, a lousy freakin' dollar on a $30-35 tank of gas is nothing and they are always thankful and attentive.

A fool and his money are soon parted.

I assume Uber works the same way.

The Lyft app will prompt you whenever higher fares are in effect. Maybe you just didn't notice it.

I always double-check the trip estimate before requesting the ride. That will include any peak charges.

Traffic has been bad the last week or so, but to say it's because of a surge in Uber and Lyft drivers is ridiculous. If anything it's because of additional roadwork on Newark Ave, Magnolia, and some other streets in the area. OP do you really think that such a significant number of the cars on the streets are cab drivers? Come on.

I already told you, if Uber wanted me to tip their drivers they would build it into their app like Lyft. Nobody is forcing anyone to drive for Uber. The fact is, this is one of the easiest jobs to ever exist and therefore should be paid that way.

And I know drivers don't get huge compensation, but they certainly do better than $8/hour. (It's closer to $20/hour after costs)

P.S. I always tip taxis / car services etc, when the driver does a good job (which is almost every time).


LOL! Have you driven for Uber buddy?! There is no way you can make that much after expenses unless it's extremly bad weather or something like the Path shutting down with extreme surge. Spoke with many other drivers and confirmed what was hapening to me was happening to them. With Uberpool drivers makes less but Uber makes more since the riders split the fare and the driver does not get extra money for stopping and picking another person up but Uber does gets an extra booking fee for each additional passenger. The booking fee is not paid to the driver. Go read some of the drivers experiences on Youtube or ask a driver next time.

It says I was charged 300% for prime time. I did not see this stated when I booked the ride. This was roughly 1am so it was not due to traffic. It was starting to snow. Is it possible to have your rate change during your ride depending on the conditions you encounter?


With Lyft I believe it is if demand is really high, with Uber the price you see will be the price you pay unless you go through tolls or cause damage to the vehicle. They recently changed that with Uber. BTW Uber will be offering free Uberpool rides in NYC for small business Saturday. Tip the driver at least a $1 since they absolutely hate Uberpool just go on youtube if you don't believe me.
