New York City's taxi and black vehicle regulator plans to require Uber Technologies to add a tipping feature to its app by July.
Uber's refusal to launch an in-app tip option led the guild to launch a campaign a year ago with auto stickers and social media posts to let passengers know that they can tip and that gratuity is not included in their fare.
If Uber offered a tipping prompt in its app, drivers in NY could reasonably expect another $4 to $6 an hour-a 21% to 32% increase over $19.
"Today's decision is a vitally important step forward for drivers".
What about you, reader? And this study shows that when people are presented with three tip choices - 20%, 25% or 30%, for example - they're more likely to choose the middle option even if it's more than the traditional 20%, according to one analysis of 13 million New York City taxi rides by the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business. Low pay was a common theme among drivers, as was Uber's manipulation of fare prices.

"Uber is always striving to offer the best earning opportunity for drivers and we are constantly working to improve the driver experience", she said.
But that awkward tipping moment may be going away, at least in New York City.
"New York City's professional drivers have traditionally depended on gratuities for a substantial portion of their income", Conigliaro, a machinists union official, said.
Those charges and the proposed penalty are now subject to examination by an administrative law judge who will conduct further proceedings before recommending to the five-member commission itself what action, if any, should be taken against the company. "There is anger among drivers that government is not intervening in raising their issues with Ola and Uber", Kamaljeet Gill, president of Sarvodaya Drivers' Association, said. "Cuts to driver pay across the ride hail industry has made tipping income more important than ever". In September, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 announced that 14,000 Lyft, Uber, and other e-hail drivers had signed union cards, but given the drivers' current classification as independent contractors, it's not clear how they'll get legal recognition. That said, other respondents still tip what they want regardless of suggested tip amounts or the presence of a "no tip" option.
Reacting to the call for protest, Uber said in a statement that this time, the drivers can not obstruct others who are willing to come on duty.
