KUSA - As part of an effort to cast itself as a better place to work, Uber announced Tuesday that it will add the option to tip its drivers.
It’s something that rival ride-sharing company Lyft has been doing for a while.
Tipping on Uber is now live in Seattle, Houston and Minneapolis – and it’s expected to be available in every U.S. city by the end of July.
Every dollar a rider tips will go straight to the driver, Uber said in a news release Tuesday.
The ride-sharing service is also reducing its cancellation window from five minutes to two. If you make your driver wait longer, you have to pay a $5 cancellation fee.
In addition, Uber says it will start charging riders for every minute past the first two they make their driver wait.
