Why You Shouldn't Tip An Uber Driver

Posted on May 4, 2016

One of the best things about Uber is when you arrive at your destination, you can just wish the driver a good day and get out of the car. No fumbling with your wallet, no calculating tips, no waiting for the credit card to go through, no juggling a pen, no asking for a receipt. It’s a seamless transaction. The company charges your credit card and emails you a receipt.

For riders in California and Massachusetts, this simplicity may be coming to an end — but only if passengers let it.

To settle a lawsuit claiming it unlawfully categorized drivers as independent contractors rather than employees, Uber has agreed to pay up to $100 million and make some changes in its relationship with drivers. One change is it will let them ask for tips.

Unlike its competitor Lyft, however, Uber won’t collect the money on their behalf by letting passengers charge their accounts. Drivers will have to get the tips in cash or through a separate credit card transaction.
