Uber in-app tipping starts today in San Diego

Uber in-app tipping starts today in San Diego

According to the company, riders have up to seven days after the trip to rate the ride and add a tip, but if a rider wants to go back and tip a driver for a trip they already rated, they have up to 30 days to do so.

Uber riders in Pittsburgh can now tip their drivers through the app, the ride-sharing company announced Monday.

You can easily choose from preset percentages or put in your own amount.

Almost a month after rolling out the feature in three USA cities, Uber is launching in-app tipping nationwide, including in the District - allowing passengers to steer drivers an extra token of appreciation at the ends of their trips.

Add a tip while rating the trip.

Uber announced the tip feature last month and rolled it out in Seattle, Minneapolis and Houston.

Riders will have the option to tip directly in the app after each trip. UberEats customers can also tip their drivers after deliveries, the company says. "It starts with tipping, which is now available in the Uber Driver app". Passengers will now have an option to give drivers a tip at the end of their rides.

In a statement Monday, Lyft illustrated the impact of its tipping feature on its driver earnings, while issuing a characteristic jab at its chief competitor.

Small steps by the company to improve working conditions and pay for drivers are steps in the right direction, but they are merely a bandage on a much deeper problem of a culture that treats its drivers as disposable.
