Uber has been running for quite some time and is basically a fancier way of getting a cab. Throughout time Uber drivers have been driving people and not having the chance to put the option of a tip, since everything is done on an app. Well now in New York City, Uber is trying to add that option of letting the client tip the driver, all on the Uber app.

They’ve got this idea from all the years taxi and limo drivers got tipped for being excellent chauffeurs. The petition was brought up by the Uber drivers of New York and were able to get 11,000 signatures supporting this cause. These drivers are craving this new tipping system due to the money they are losing from people not tipping them.
P.C: New York Post
Since New York is the top state that uses Uber in the U.S., this new fancy business wants to expand because the opportunity is there. The problem that they think they will have in the future is that the app will be less appealing and that clients that don’t tip, might feel guilty for not doing so. This will be looked at by the taxi commission’s board later on July. Until then, these drivers will just have to wait and listen to see if the petition will be approved.
