I always tell my passengers when the "Tip" subject comes up, Why don't you next leave a 5* rating at a bar or restaurant and no tip and see what service you get next time time.. They think about it for a while and then they say how do you know if a person got a tip or not? Then I tell the, how you rate your driver, we also rate the passenger after every trip as well. The passenger's does not see their rating till the next pick up and the Uber driver will determine if your rating is low enough not to pick you up or not.. Can you imagine that, your out on the town with your girlfriends and no ride @ 3:am in the morning and it's cold & raining outside? You should rate your Uber driver on your ride, did we get you there safe, was the car clean, was it nice and comfortable temperature.. The realize Uber drivers are common folks just like bartenders and wait staff trying to earn a buck to provide for their families as well. I always have a conversation with 95% of my passengers and they do agree Uber is a great service and teh don't want it to go away.. Then they just fiddle in their purse/pocket and give me a $3.00 or more tip
and I always tell all my passengers, I really appreciate your kind generosity, have a wonderful day and see you again on your next visit with Uber..
