A tip for non-tipping riders

I started rating passengers from the day before who haven't tipped me by giving them a 4 rating and noting "No tip." in feedback. I have found that only 10% of my passengers tip. I've been driving for a little over 2 months. How about we all join together and do this to emphasize to the passengers that tips are as important to us drivers as tipping a waiter in a restaurant? How 'bout it? Will you join me?

    OK, here is the problem with that 1) we cannot move on until we rate the customer. 2)Most who tip, do not do so immediately, sometimes they tip 24+ hours later 3)They may never see the reason why you gave them a 4. If you want tips, the best way is to give great service, with a clean car. (no cigarrette or strong air freshener smells) Stay positive... it's like I want to say more, but who wants to raise the bar when you are appreciated for being so far above it.

    I like the idea but the problem is riders don't see their ratings so I don't think it will really help the situation.

    What you suggested can only be done on Lyft, on Uber you must rate the passenger immediately after the trip ends, it is one and done if you want to continue receiving ride requests. Read my article regarding the subject!
