Uber launches driver tipping option in app nationwide; will match all tips on July 18th

After first announcing its new policy last month, Uber began allowing its drivers nationwide to accept tips on Monday.

To celebrate and thank its drivers, the ride-sharing company will match all tips for one day only on July 18th.

Riders will be allowed to tip their drivers up to two times the total fare of a ride. They'll also have up to 30 days after the end of a ride to add a tip.

But if you want Tuesday's tips to be matched, you'll have to add one within 24 hours.

The change is part of a campaign Uber launched in June called "180 Days of Change", which was in response to a series of public relation crises earlier this year.

Uber had repeatedly refused to include a tipping option in their app in recent years.
