Uber's done a U-turn on tips.
The ride sharing company now lets passengers tip their drivers.
Staring in Seattle, Minneapolis, and Houston, and rolling out to all US drivers at the end of July, riders will see the option in the Uber app.
And that's the tip of the iceberg because Uber's also adding more drivers, including Drive injury protection insurance, a cancellation fee if your rider cuts and runs after more than two minutes, and a two dollar teen fare.
Uber has resisted tipping for a long time and only let drivers accept them informally in the past.
Its main US competitor Lyft offers tips.
So why roll out tips now?

CEO Travis Kalanick Caught on camera arguing with a driver.
And The New York Times uncovered a secretive tool called Greyball that Uber used to evade law enforcement.
Last week Kalanick took a leave of absence from his role as CEO.
This came after After an independent investigation, it recommended changes to senior leadership.
Uber's obviously hoping that by rolling out changes for drivers, it will shoo fears for the brand's image.
