5* for tippers, people who accept high surge, and those rare people who brighten my day in some significant way.
4* for riders who have toes on curb when I pull up and are well-behaved during the ride.
3* and below for everyone else, depending on their attitude and behavior.

That is a good way to look at it. I started about a week ago I have given everyone a 5 * even this chick who gave me a low rating maybe because I didn't recognize the street she lived on was in the middle of a college campus and I didn't recognize the name of the street. I didn't use navigation that one time. I made about maybe a $1.00 for that trip I should have given her a 1* or 2* for her no tipping ass! I have been giving good looking ladies a 5* for being good looking! Maybe I have given 5* for everyone in hopes they will give me a 5* Remember it could be days or weeks before the passenger gives us a rating. They don't have to give a rating as we do!

I wouldn't go lower than a 4* if a lack of tip was the only issue. Giving them a low rating won't increase my chances of getting a tip in the future. And, it's possible they didn't realize they could or should tip; a lot of Uber users (especially new ones) are under the impression that tipping isn't expected. Though maybe you've got a sign posted or something?

I rate riders based on their attitude and how well they respect my my vehicle. Generally, if I enjoy their company they get a 5. I think rating pax negatively based on not tipping is childish and lame. It serves no purpose other than an impotent, benign, unheard 'screw you' to a pax to make an entitled driver feel better. Sorry, I'm above it. If I get tip, fantastic thanks so much! If I don't, perhaps I didn't deserve it or the pax believes its included in the fare or he's just a cheap SOB. Whatever the reason, I refuse to retaliate with a low rating simply because it's the only weapon I have. It's meaningless! If you get stiffed, and you're pissed about it, confront the non-tipper directly! "Excuse me, I feel I provided excellent service during your trip but you didn't tip me. May I ask why?" That I can respect!

Uber clearly tells users that tipping is not required why would you rate someone lower than 5 stars unecessarily .....thats like people giving you less than 5 stars for not having mints or water it's not required and you still do your service ......get over yourself ...

What gets me is we bust our ass to get the passenger where they're going and they give us a low rating as if we were privileged to be blessed with hauling their ass somewhere.
Now that's a different story

5 all the time. Why? It doesn't matter.

IF you don't like that answer, swap 5 for any number 1-4. Why? Same reason.

I have only given a 1 * rating one time as the girl started puking out the window. Luckily she didn't get any inside the car. I just took a bottle of water and rinsed it off. Nobody has been disrespectful to me or they would get a lower rating. I don't agree with the lower rating for not tipping. A lot of people don't carry cash this day in age. I don't even carry cash myself. I blame Uber because they can simply add a tipping feature to the riders app. I don't know why they are so against it. If someone doesn't want to tip then they don't.

You must be a new driver. Best listen to others that have been around.

Everyone starts with ☆☆☆☆☆

Bring any opened food or cup -☆

Give me directions I didn't ask for -☆

Apply creams sunscreen cover up makeup -☆☆
See your hand reach anywhere after to wipe on my seats -☆☆☆☆ and end ride

let me catch you watching the map on Your app -☆☆☆☆
(Without fail rider will rate low because their WAZE route was different and nav ding on report)

Ask for water gum -☆☆☆

Ask for aux cord = push, touch the volume knob -☆☆☆

Expect me to load/unload groceries -☆

It's really up to you, I don't deduct for no tip, The UBER mother ship continues the propaganda about no cash tips not needed lots of Pax think drivers make tons of cash.

Ask for water gum -☆☆☆ just say no, I'm not in that cult

Ask for aux cord = push, touch the volume knob -☆☆☆ only to re-charge, no tunes

I only rate tippers 5 stars if you dont tip the highest rating I give is 4. Im 2 dollars a @@@@ing mile cheaper than a cab in this town. And why the @@@@ would I give out free water when uber is telling people not to @@@@ing tip me. I can deal with the bullshit rates if they would just quit telling people not to tip. Thank god there are people here that remember having to take cabs before uber and they don't mind giving $5-20 bucks extra for a clean car and good service. It makes up for the 80% of people that listen to ubers bullshit. Not only should they encourage tipping they should let them add a tip to their credit cards if they want so we can still be "cashless". No you are not required to tip but I am not required to just give you 5 stars either. Hell I see it as a service to me fellow drivers who are trying to decide if they really want to make that 15 minute deadhead to get a trip.

Dittio Greg from above…points off for not having their destination in the app and also for leaving trash in my SUV rear seat.

5* for tippers...no matter the amount.
4* for generally everybody else.
3* if I'm expecting to pick up "Mike", and "Susan" gets in the car instead. In other words, anyone who orders a ride using their account for their friends. When people do this, I don't know who is in my car. I don't know how insurance coverage would work if there's an accident. If I get robbed, assaulted, or battered by this unknown person...then what? I want the person who has signed up with Uber, and is making a contract with Uber when they request a ride, to have his or her ass in my vehicle.
2* I've never given one.
1* obnoxious drunk people.

I very rarely get a tip and I don't think it has to do with the service I provide with 4.89 rating so when I do, it's a genuine thank you and we split ways. Everyone I drive gets 5 stars unless there is some issue whether they are disrespectful or make a mess or whatever. I would never consider reducing their rating because they didn't tip, that's asinine.
