Uber has announced it will make various changes to how its drivers get paid, including adding an option for riders to tip their driver.
Tipping is available as of today in Seattle, Minneapolis, and Houston; the cities will serve as test markets that let the company “create the best tipping experience.” Tipping will be available to all US drivers by the end of July.
