    SUCCINT video about TIPPING on Ridehail

    Probably not much new here to your seasoned Ride-Hail driver, but this is a succinct video put together by VOX/FuturePerfect on the Tipping Issues and Culture in the Ride-Hail industry.

    Do they think we are ATMS's???

    Had a couple of pax's request that I give them cash in exchange for a tip on the app (this may have been discussed already). The second suggested I stop at CVS to get cash back so that we could make the transaction happen! He was like: "So you aren't going to make the stop at CVS right there?"...

    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...

    Uber is subtracting rider in-app tips from cleaning fees

    Note the last sentence. This comes from the Sydney forum (per @Mulder99): https://uberpeople.net/threads/tips-removed-from-cleaning-fee-claim.342417/.

    Uber taking tips?

    Sounds funny right? Wouldn’t surprise me though. I took a much needed break for a month and came back and every tip I have received in the past week has had change involved but when I go to see what the rider paid, it doesn’t round up the the nearest dollar. Thoughts?

    A New Low for Uber- Suspect Uber is Taking Tips?

    On my way back from MIA I got stuck in traffic, I get the new splash screen notifying me of a tip for $5. Great! This was my last ride, so I go to close out for the day and there is no tip showing up. I give it some time, still no tip. The previous ride I got the same splash screen for a...

    To get tipped or not to get tipped that is the question

    I saw a post about a Uber driving wanting to give a bad rating to a pax for not tipping him. I'm a baby boomer and was raised that you tip based on service rendered. Getting a tip is a privilege not a right. There are a lot of reasons that you might not get a tip. Maybe they are new to the app...

    Unusual results yesterday

    Nothing exciting here... Just posting between requests... Normally my U/L ratio is 50/50 or 60/40 in favor of Uber. Last night I did 12 Uber and 22 Lyft. Rather unusual. The % of pax that tip me (either cash or in app combined) is usually 25-40% on Uber and usually 33-50% on Lyft. My Lyft...

    Played pax against pax for sympathy tip.

    Picked up 3 pax for a ride into the city. Everything going great. Then, half way there, we have a stop to pick up a fourth pax. This one wanted to give directions. I'm usually fine with that, but every once in a while you get that pax that wants to give directions in the most condescending way...
