Rider Concern: Uber Taxi Gratuity Preference

By default Uber TAXI is set to 20%. You can change it down to 0% and up as much as 30%. To change the gratuity preference given to your TAXI driver, you can do so on Uber website (

1. Sign in
2. Click the “Payment” link at the top of the page
3. Select your preferred gratuity percentage from the dropdown menu next to the words “TAXI gratuity as a percentage of metered fare”
4. Click the “Save” button

Keep in mind, 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.

Also we must point out that you cannot use a promo on a TAXI trip. It will simply not apply and you will find yourself paying for that ride. Promotions can and will be only applied against all other Uber rides at this time.
