Drivers: You Don’t Deserve a Tip—Earn It


A number of articles have come out recently that show rideshare drivers don’t tip regularly.

Anyone who’s driven for more than a month probably read those articles and thought, “Duh!”

Personally, I don’t think drivers deserve a tip for providing a safe, comfortable ride. That’s what expected.

If drivers want tips they need to provide exceptional service. That doesn’t mean you need to bend over backwards for your riders but it does mean you need to set yourself apart from all the other drivers in your market.

In one of his latest videos, Erik from California Driver shares his analysis of the current state of tipping and how he sets himself apart from other drivers in his market.

Hopefully this video helped you out and you’re on your way to earning more. If it did, tell Erik you heard about him from Ride Upstate.
