When using the TAXI option, a 20% gratuity is added for your driver by default. If you would like to change the gratuity given to your driver, you can do so on uber.com.
The gratuity you select will be applied to any future TAXI trips that you request through Uber. It will apply to TAXI fares only (not UberBLACK, UberSUV, or uberX) and be paid to your driver.
To change your TAXI gratuity preference:
- Sign in to uber.com
- Click the “Payment” link at the top of the page
- Select your preferred gratuity percentage from the dropdown menu next to the words “TAXI gratuity as a percentage of metered fare”
- Click the “Save” button
