I have taken one Uber ride. Driver was pleasant, car clean etc... If I absolutely had to find a negative about the trip it would be communication was a little difficult as his English (speaking & understanding) was limited. He passed my drop off so I just asked him to pull over and jumped out on corner (thought it would be easier & safer because of road we were on then to explain he passed stop). To me neither of these things were reason not to tip or give 5 stars. Of course I tipped him. In fact felt the need to tip well as we all know tips make a difference & help with our income. For me not to tip a driver it would have to be a terrible unsafe ride with a filthy car and bad odor. I know many people in service industry that tip and tip well because they get what its like. I have had 7 riders over past few months who claim to also be Uber drivers. They were pretty knowledgeable so I assume they were truthful. Only one has tipped. On all these rides there was pleasant conversation sharing driving tips and general conversation about driving. Car clean, no bad odor, no navagation errors, no pick up or drop off issues. One of trips (although not a good idea) I had to go out of my way to pick him up as he was broke down on an on ramp to I95 with destination to Camden (a crime ridden area in NJ). Not an area I would pick up from for trip back. Am I wrong to think that these riders/drivers should have tipped. Interested to hear if you do not agree and why? Please share.
