    Well, I'm trying the tip cup. Today was day one, it certainly does help. We will see when the signs come in how well they work.

    It will be interesting to see how it works out.
    I am sure a Tip Jar will generate more tips.
    But it will also lower your rating as some passengers find it unprofessional or take offense.
    Uber has offered a couple of promotions providing $1 per 5 Star rating.
    I actually like that as it provides a Tip for high level of service on most every trip and still leaves an avenue for cash tips from passenger.

    So far so good. Some XL trips I get more than 1 person tipping. No doubt it will increase revenues. Just got my Annual Lyft report, made 955.00 in tips in 2016!

    Lyft passengers can tip anyway and are prompted in app.
    I am referring to Uber tips.
    I think it would help in A2 with the students that almost never tip.
    What does your sign day?

    Last night I did some long driving. Tip Cup works great it is stuffed. My cup says
    Tip Cup
    XXXXXX
    College Fund.

    It is stuffed full , I have to empty it before driving today. Even Lyft passengers were tipping with dollars!


    Head Rest is divided into the middle. One side covers tipping the other side covers the Rating System.

    I received my e-mail as well:
    Trips and Tips - 1864 and $2164. That dollar amount represents about 10% of the gross earnings. I'm at the 20% fee level for both Lyft and Uber.

    That is brilliant!!!!!!!! College Fund Im trying that out. I do mostly Uber and a solid rating if goes south. Always figured A2 is too stuck up, maybe it doesn't hurt to ask. Got tip plenty in Metro Detroit, what times im there. Thanks

    Some times riders tip me on the Lyft Platform and give me a cash tips. That's a double whammy!

    Update on tip cup and sign.....Big Success. If you don't have one get one. Otherwise your missing out on Revenues. I don't drive like I use too. Now that I'm doing so many Lyft mentorings. Tips have been rolling in when I do. Just in a couple hours of driving last night. I made over 30 dollars in tips, had to empty my little tip box more often lately. Overall I should of done it along time ago. My ratings have not been effected at all. That is all hogwash. If you provide a nice clean car, and friendly atmosphere. You will make good tips by adding a sign and tip jar or box!!!!

    my friend who started driving Uber by my referral, said she met a middle eastern driver at DTW in the north cell lot, that Has a Tip jar with a pic of his wife and kids and are telling PAX that he is trying to get his family home here from Iraq, that the Travel Ban stopped them from letting the come home! He had already made $45 in tips in 2 hours. LOLOL It was a total fraud.. but he played on peoples feelings. It was brilliant!

    Drivers are in the service industry, so IMO we should get tips!!

    Foolish! I would never make a political statement. Supporters on both sides are too passionate. I'm driving them from point A to point B. I do well with tips without asking for tips. Case of water at Kroger costs me about .16 cents a water to offer them. half say no. all appreciate it. Most who take the water tip. Lots of $5 bills lately.

    I disagree, I have been thinking if a tip cup as well. Truthfully I think pax should tip but most the students don't. If most drivers out 1 in their car it would be more mainstream for pax to see them and tip. The college kids are tipping bartenders. Coat checks and every1 else, why not their drivers? I mean come on, on most weekend nights they are going on a $5 trip so what's an extra $1 for a tip? Plus many frat guys will do anything to impress their friends and girlsfriends. If I get around to making 1 I will post it and tell u all how it goes. Until then I encourage others to use 1, not because I wanted them booted off Uber but because pax SHOULD be expected and leave tips!

    I have a tip Box between my seats, easy access for passengers. Also a tip sign. I haven't been driving much, because I mentor for Lyft. Going back to pure driving. Tip box has been a big success!!!

    You can't get booted off Uber for a tip box. Remember the court proceedings, Uber cannot deactivate drivers for not accepting rides, and it is no longer against Uber rules to get tips. Both were big improvements for drivers. Drive smart, not like a blind mouse.
