    I drive part time & tell the pax that I only take good passengers since I can be picky. They always ask what I mean & I tell them "well you, for example, are rated at 4.92 which is pretty good. If you were like a 4.42 I would have passed on giving you a ride. Usually lower rated pax are rude, have damaged a drivers car, thrown up, not tipped, etc.. That's why they have lower ratings."
    They either tip or a conversation about tipping ensues. Either way it's a win ;)
    In the short term, it doesn't appear to change anything at all. Over the long term, change does happen.

    The tipping situation regarding Uber is not the same as it was years ago. Uber used to say in their marketing materials that "tip is included". They got sued and settled. That is no longer in their marketing materials. That is change. It's a small change, as Uber now just puts "no need to tip" in their marketing materials, but it is change... and the change continued. Uber used to deactivate drivers for soliciting tips. Uber got sued and settled. Now they've stated they won't deactivate drivers for soliciting tips. That is change. It's a small change, as riders have been trained by Uber not to tip for years, so the tip solicitations don't work as well in an Uber car as they do in other types of businesses, but it is change.... and the change will continue. As long as drivers continue their efforts to change the anti-tip culture of Uber, change will continue. It doesn't appear to change in the short term, but over the long term, change does happen.
