The newly formed Independent Drivers Guild (IDG) is already bringing justice and benefits to thousands of New York City Uber drivers, and most recently has begun urging Uber to include an easy tipping option in the ride-sharing app. Drivers are losing out on thousands of dollars because Uber does not provide an easy tip option.
The ease of not having to use cash or slide a credit card at the end of a ride is one reason ride-sharing apps like Uber are popular. Many riders don’t realize that tips are not included in their fare and Uber makes the problem worse when it misleads riders by telling them tips are not expected.
Riders who appreciate a safe and friendly ride would like to thank their drivers. Let Uber know you want an easy option to let your driver know they are appreciated.
