They do state you can give 20% for exceptional service. Is it just me or does 10% seem low!

Standard tip: $1 to $2 per person for shorter rides; 10% (up to 20% for exceptional service)
Tip at the end of the ride, and tip extra for traffic, construction, distance, inconveniences, and if the driver helps with luggage or packages.

    I have a feeling this was created by someone who has never taken a taxi or a rideshare.  This makes no sense at all.  Tip for "construction?"  What, if you drive by one?  

    "Tip at the end of the ride, and tip extra for traffic, construction, distance, inconveniences, and if the driver helps with luggage or packages."

    I find it fascinting that they have separate entries for Taxis vs. Uber/Lyft. 

    The funnier is that the info is similar. 10~20%.  but $1 for shorter trips.

    I thought the point of rideshares was not to tip. This is dumb.

      This should categorize different Uber services.  For UberBlacks, people usually do not tip.  I assume this article is referring to the UberXs of the world.

    Super low. 20% is standard for services in most cities these days.

    I feel lik this Business Insider article will create this precedence.  The history has been written folks.  10~20%.  So, that'd be like $3~$6 for a $30 ride. Does that seem right?

    Such responsibility that this BI article has.  and I have a feeling they didn't put that much thought into it.

    One day our kids will be like "wait you used to NOT tip your uber drivers?!" - it is seriously so backwards.

    10% seems about right to me. I would only go as high as 20% if it was on the companies dime and I liked the driver, lol
