    Do some Caviar customers sometimes stiff couriers on tips?

    After I have stopped doing UberEats trips for more than a year now, I recently signed up for Caviar for an extra income & give it a chance to test out how the experience may turn out. So far I have had positive experiences, but I have taken two screenshots where I accepted a trip with base...

    New tip option and quests/boosts eliminated.

    I received two tips today for $1.76 and $1.46. They must have put in a % option. This infuriates me because they have also eliminated quests and don't give a boost change for weekends anymore. X1.1 is an insult. Every week it seems like they find a way to pay the drivers less. I also can't stand...

    How I Survived Driving Part-Time in the Suburbs

    All I wanted to do was make $200 a week driving 10 to 12 hours for Uber. I thought it would be easy but it led me on a 1,500 trip odyssey. A little less than 3 years ago my wife and I retired. We sold our house and moved into a condo near by. The leases on our cars ended and we leased a Honda...

    Earning more tips as a Lyft/Uber driver without spending a penny Drivers all want to earn more tips, without doing anything or spending much to achieve them. Everyone is looking for that “magic bullet” that is going to help them achieve greater tips. What is the secret formula? Is it giving...

    I rode as a pax today... the experience is not good

    So I had to take 3 daytime rides as a pax for the first time in a few months. I'm pretty annoyed as a driver now. Terrible advertising-When I opened the app, there's a banner I get 50% of mon-fri. That's great for me as a pax, but as a driver what good is it if Lyft never advertised it ahead...

    Do you tip less since you started driving for Uber?

    I definitely have. Did 9 rides yesterday, not a single one of them tipped. I've definitely stopped tipping as much in bars, at restaurants, in coffee shops, etc. If people won't tip someone driving them to SFO in rush hour traffic why should I tip because you poured me a drink?

    Is Uber stealing our tips?

    I went 0-20 last couple of days in tips. What's concering is some of them are repeat customers and they tipped every single time in the past. I drive only black and every now and then I turn on select, so my customer pool in my area is small and 90% are repeat riders who I picked up in the past...

    Has anyone posted a notice regarding 'tipping' in their vehicle?

    I know this question can be responded to by any number of sardonic remarks (I can think of a few myself), but has anyone tried to post a small sign in their vehicle to the effect that 'Please Note: Uber drivers rely on tips to generate just a modest hourly rate. If you are satisfied with your...

    What Passengers Aren't Told About Lyft and Uber

    A DRIVER TELLS ALL A Driver's Perspective of Getting the Most From Rideshare Services I drive Lyft and Uber. Professional service is my goal — I am a 4.95+ rated driver (Clean roomy Camry Hybrid with leather seats, equipped with multiple phone chargers for passengers, XMRadio, and mints). In...

    NJ tipping gas station attendant

    NJ is one of the only states that require gas station attendants to fill up your gas. I've always wondered do we tip or not. Today I gave a $1 tip and wished the guy a Merry Christmas. Made his day

    Tipping Point

    The only ones who don’t know Uber & Lyft just passed a tipping point are Uber & Lyft. Plus a hundred thousand ants. It’s open season on them now.

    A positive move by Uber

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but Uber did something good for the driver. See the (pax) email I got, and how it encourages tipping the driver.

    Lyft is adding automatic tipping

    https://www.engadget.com/amp/2018/11/15/lyft-changes-for-tipping-and-rating/ And default 5 star rating! Lyft is launching another campaign to improve the experience for its drivers, and at least a few of the changes could affect you as a passenger. In December, it's conducting a limited launch...

    LYFT PAX will now default to 5* ratings to Driver

    Interesting update from LYFT: If PAX doesn't rate it defaults to 5* (more or less analogous to the driver App) They are auto-dropping LOWEST rating, and explicitly communicating to drivers that they can 'tell their side to dispute low ratings (I do this all the time when PAX asks me to do...

    NYTimes: Should You Tip Your Uber Driver? If So, How Much?

  16. Mista T

    One penny tip

    End of the ride and a ten year old (guessing) says "Here, here's a tip for you. It's all I have, but at least it's something." Hands me a penny. His intent was sincere, I thanked him and told him I appreciated it. Older brother put $2 in app, I wonder if he felt guilty, lol.

    Should you tip your Uber/Lyft driver?

    Today roughly 1/3 of the US workforce is categorized as somehow being in the “service” industry. But tipping is not clear cut across the board. It seems odd that someone would get tipped for making coffee, but not for spending half an hour helping you pick out a pair of comfortable pants. Why...

    New Driver, No tips???

    Hey new driver here. I have been driving for 3 days so far and have given 9 rides total, however, I have no received any tips yet. So I was wondering if tipping is a common or uncommon thing? Or am I just doing something wrong. Let me start by just saying after spending nearly 2 hours on hold...

    Pay it Forward Challenge

    Hello fellow rideshare drivers. I don't know about you but it really annoys me that people, especially waiters and waitresses etc. don't tip when I provide them with my rideshare service. They work for tips and so do we. They get paid a low hourly base. We do not. We maintain our cars and pay...
