That's because Wichita has some of the best people.I'm at 45%. Yes, I do keep many personal Uber stats on an excel spreadsheet.
Luckily, my condo is in a nice area of town, and I keep my Uber app on while I'm home. Still...45% sucks!!! PAX sucks! I could not imagine using Uber & not tipping.
you're telling me. I have a Lux vehicle and I'll take X rides from time to time and literally I've gone 10 straight rides with no tip before. Lux people almost never tip too. Everyone who gets in says I have such a nice car, I'm 4.96 so it's not like I'm a bad driver or anything...people are just cheap hereholy crap, 20% is horrendous!
I have picked up few dancers and they could not pay me enough to watch them dance and they did not tip. Maybe they will tip if I picked them from their job rather than dropping them off at their job.Exotic dancers are my favorites. Aside from the obvious, they are always really nice, talkative, smell great and excellent tippers. The patrons from their clubs are the worst. Full of testosterone, grumpy from blowing all their money and rarely tip.
One night around Xmas last year, picked up a couple of cowboys from the strip club. One started crying actual tears wondering how he was gonna explain to the wife he spent $800 there and had blown all the Xmas present money for the kids. Few hours later I picked up a dancer from there who said she had a great night because of a couple of cowboys... $20 tip. Could only think of it as little Timmys Xmas gift money lol.
I live in South Jersey and about 1/4 tip and outside of South Jersey 1/10 tip.Almost everyone tips a taxi driver. But not so for Uber (ironic, considering that they are saving money). It's funny the things people tip: hair lady, manicurist, delivery guy. But not the Uber driver.
I have found the best tippers are airport pickups.
What percentage of your riders tip?
You should write a book.Turns out she was testing me to see if I was bluffing about studying programming. She owns her own "Women in game development" company and she was just in Seattle attending a conference. She said when I get back to the East coast, look her up.
My market is pretty slow so I have plenty of time between pings to transfer data to a spreadsheet. I don't drive around looking for rides that are not there. I will drive to key spots, park and wait.You should write a book.
There are many tip threads. I run 30-40%. I'm a terrible driver so I get by mostly on my good looks.
I tried to track every ride in the spreasheet I use to track income/expenses but Lyft doesn't have a CVS export facility and Uber's export is incomplete. Thus too much time to track. Hats off to those that do.
