    $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.

    $.93 here off 363 rides...will be interesting to see if this number increases or DECREASES in 2017...I'd like to think tips will gain more traction as time goes on...

    2016: Just under 600 rides, averaged $0.98 per ride in tips.
    2015: Just over 1,100 rides, averaged $1.19 per ride in tips.
    2014: Just over 500 rides, averaged $1.16 per ride in tips.

    These figures do not include cash tips from Lyft rides, which may have added a few cents to these average tip amounts.

    I have been pleasantly surprised by just how much I make in tips. I am new and only have been out this about three weeks but it makes a big huge portion of my income!

    Average tip is - less than 0. Don't get fooled by female drivers screenshots, they get tips because of the "hooters effect".

    Trust me they work against me as much as they work for me. It took less than two weeks to realize driving late nights was a nightmare even though the money was better. I did not go into driving afraid at all even though my friends thought I was crazy to drive as a small female but I was propositioned by so many men within two weeks it was ridiculous. With one refusing to get out of my car and throwing money at me and screaming because I refused to tell him how much I make per night so that he could compensate me for what make per night and I could just stay at his house. And then the idiot left his phone in my car
