Not a surprise, the passengers have been programmed not to tip for seven years before it became available on the app. In Los Angeles the tipping rates are at most 20%

    I feel kinda bad that Uber and Lyft even screwed over the taxi industry by starting this whole no tipping culture.

      No tipping cultu only valid for rideshare drivers, tipping culture alive and well at bars, restaurants, cabs even at valet parking

    Ya, I have said it before but riders have been trained that they do not need to tip. That is like telling a dog that they do not need to roll over for a treat and then all the sudden saying "well you should roll over but youll still get the treat even if you don't". What dog would roll over?

    Try over 90 percent and do you think drivers will clean the back after each ride ??
