Beginning on Tuesday, drivers in Houston, Minneapolis and Seattle can collect tips.
The expanded earnings opportunities are the first step in what Uber is billing as "180 days of change" for its US drivers. Uber announced that it is rolling out a tipping option for drivers. "Some changes will be big, some will be small ー all will be changes drivers have asked for", Uber wrote in a blog post.
Uber riders could always technically tip their drivers in cash, but they weren't encouraged or prompted to do so.
