    I am new Uber driver, it is my part time job, so far i drive 3 days, i just take a look on my statement, Uber charge passenger (rider fee) for 1 dollar, but on our (drivers) apps, it was safety fee. I would like to know on statement and our apps or website have different name for 1 fee?

    I know this fee does not effect my payout, but i still want to know.

    One more question is about the tips, on Uber website stated no need to tips because Uber is not transportation provider, that's true, but we, Uber driver are transportation providers, so do Uber must have to say no need to tips all the time?

    What your opinion?

    same thing, it's supposed to be for whatever it takes on insurance and other things to make sure it's SAFE....it's all BS...but we are not charged, only the rider. it's dumb

    UberX used to have a base fare that they conveniently got rid of at the same time they brought out the safe rider fee. Basically it's a way for Uber to collect more money on each fare. They've already stated that the money doesn't go towards additional insurance. Supposedly it goes towards training drivers, but the only training drivers get is the same old YouTube video that promotes the fantasy of drivers opening doors, giving out water, and refusing tips. I'm surprised it doesn't report that Santa Claus is real. All you need to know about the safe rider fee is they probably just use it to get hookers and blow for the office.

    Uber charges passenger this "safety fee" and takes $1 out of every ride from YOU also. 1+1= $2 they pocket off of every ride you do.


    They actually used to give you the "safety fee" in the past. Because if you didn't get into an accident uber actually rewarded. Now you don't get JACK ****

    If we receive that $1, that's almost help us cover gasoline cost.

    Do not turn down tips that would be insane. You can get deactivated for asking for them though if the pax complains to uber. No part of the Uber fare is a tip to the driver. Sect 4 Par 4 http://t.co/tBQ6EylShP
