Uber Adds Tip and Late Fee Option

Uber announced on Monday that it will now give passengers in the United States the option to tip their drivers. The Los Angeles Times  reports that, in addition to the built-in tipping option, the ride  service revealed plans to charge riders by the minute if they keep  drivers waiting more than two minutes. Uber is also reducing the time  that riders have to cancel a ride to avoid being slapped with a $5 fee  from five minutes to two minutes after summoning a driver. While Uber  won't take any part of the tips given drivers, it will continue to  collect a portion of ride-cancellation fees and the new waiting-time  charges.
