CHICAGO — You'll soon be able to tip your Uber driver in Chicago.
Uber, which allows people to hail rides through an app, is rolling out an update that will allow people to tip their drivers after a trip. Drivers were not able to accept tips through the app previously.
Riders will be able to give drivers preset tips of $1, $2 or $5, or they can enter a custom amount through the app. Users will have up to 30 days after a ride to tip their driver.
Tipping will be optional "but always appreciated," according to Uber's website, and no service fees will be added on to the tip.
The service is already available in Seattle, Minneapolis and Houston, but Uber hopes to have it in every city — including Chicago — by the end of July.
Tipping will also be available for those who use UberEats, a food-delivery service with Uber drivers.
