    I've never used Uber before and have only used Lyft once. I'll be headed to Vegas in a few weeks (usually get a rental car but this time I'm trying Vegas without one) and was just curious about what would be an appropriate tip for a short drop? I guess something around a mile or a mile and a half? I know you guys don't like short drops from what I've read online, is $3 appropriate for a quick ride and would $5 be appropriate on say a drop from the airport to a hotel on the middle of the strip? Thanks for the help.

    Just checked my Lyft app, it was $3 for a little under 4 miles. It was about a year ago. Perhaps I should've tipped $5.

    Funny, when I was thinking of a username on here I was going to go with 'ShortJewishGuy.' Because I am short.

    I appreciate any tips that I get, though I appreciate $5 more than $3. :)
    That $3 definitely helps your driver out if the driver had to drive more than 5mi to pick you up for a trip that was less than 5mi.
