    $1.30 on 1,200 rides. I thought this was low. Won't be this high in 2017, tips tailed off big time towards the end of 2016 as Uber's flipped over with the price difference in this market, Lyft often at base while Uber at 2 or 3x. Guess Uber has the pricing power here.

    Dollars per trip is irrelevant. What matters is the percentage of total fares.

    Fact is since Lyft tips are reported to the IRS you make as much or more in Tips on Uber. Less frequent tips, but much larger. Once got a 50$ bill and received 20$ multiple times.
    God bless the generous Pax.... so few and far between on either platform.
    .60 cents ave tip per ride Lyft in SF. On Uber I made at least as much. 2000 rides Uber. 500 Lyft

    I barely glanced at the video and deleted. But I know I made more tips in cash w/ Lyft and Eewber than through the app and I like it that way

    Reason why drivers abandoned lyft. $1 a ride sound nice but reality sets in.
    1. Uber has a $1 base fare built in. Lyft doesn't.
    2. Uber's visible surge vs Lyft hiding Primetime.
    3. Vastly longer pickup distances.
    4. Lower guarantees & boosts.
    5. Crappy driver app

    $1.16

    1864 rides and $2164 in tips, per a Lyft email from 1/5/17. Lyft is more profitable for me than Uber.
