Let Uber drivers collect tips, says city taxi agency
Ride sharing service Uber is under new pressure in New York City to add in-app tipping.
The TLC's action on tipping rules comes after the commission held its biannual hearing on for-hire driver earnings earlier this month.
Passengers are now allowed to tip in cash, though it's generally understood that tips aren't necessary.
Uber officials said they will review the proposed rule when they see it. He said he hopes the tipping option could spread to other cities or states through similar regulations if it takes hold in NY. So it is going to be a while before anyone has the ability to tip their Uber driver. "As a result, New York City's professional drivers have traditionally depended on gratuities for a substantial portion of their income".
Commuters are likely to face a hard time on Tuesday as a section of app-based taxi drivers has threatened to go on an one-day strike, even as autorickshaw drivers are planning to take out a protest march in front of the chief minister's residence.
But drivers who were lured to Uber with promises of big pay and more business faced increased competition from fellow hacks who flooded city streets. What's more, the Lyft app includes the ability to put that tip on your credit card, but Uber's app is still tip-less. Cabbies regularly receive tips through their credit card readers ― a feature also mandated by the city's taxi commission.
"Uber is always striving to offer the best earning opportunity for drivers and we are constantly working to improve the driver experience", she said.
Most drivers of the estimated 1.5 lakh app-based taxis in Delhi-NCR have decided not to take out their vehicles on Tuesday.
Uber does have an automatic tipping option for its Uber Taxi service in Chicago, but it's fairly hidden, and drivers in other cities and on other Uber services have up to now been more or less out of luck. There is also 30-day public comment period and public hearing, and a board of commissioners votes on the final rule. Some 41% of respondents say close proximity to the server/cashier while entering a tip amount would make them more likely to tip, the 2015 Software Advice study found.
But I often don't have cash on me, or can't do the "just gimme three back" tip that you can do in a yellow cab, if paying with larger bills. Even Chicago Uber Taxi riders get no prompt to tip and have no readily accessible way to tip for a given trip.
"We are committed to keeping Delhi moving and ensuring a reliable experience for riders and drivers", Uber said. "The exploitation of ride-hailing drivers must end, and this is an important first step", he said.
