    Dear Santa, Easter Bunny, Great Pumpkin, Tooth Fairy, and all others, I know that Uber and Lyft will not increase driver pay across the board, but if they would at least meet us on just ONE THING of value, it would make 2018 so much better. Please pass on my wish list to them! Thank you :)

    Has any driver seen his daily income significantly improved with new uber tip option???? The truth is uber has compromised the tipping option by numerous booking fees increases! Consequently, riders don't feel like they should tip again with those recent fares increases! Makes sense?!
