Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you wanted to do this, it would have to be done in cash or in the form of a gift card or an actually gift, if you are happy with the services of this driver. Since everything is done via credit card, Uber does not allow you to add an additional time onto the fare but if you wanted to tip them with cash or a gift, you are able to do so.

I was NOT there. I am disabled, my (heading to dementia) mother was the passenger. I pay, she rides. It is easy to complain. Why so hard to reward?
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
Uber is set up to not allow tips on the charge card. If you are not there and it is your mother who is the passenger, have her or someone ask the drive their name and phone number. You can then contact them and send them the gratuity if you desire. What you want do is outside the scope of Uber, so it needs to be done on a personal level.

My mother always gives them a candy bar. My issue is; She is not equipped to properly compensate, what I consider "over the top" kindness, generosity, "plain good behavior", we seldom see today. I do not want this to become a conversation or debate.
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
She should have the divers cell phone number since they call when they are near. If not she can ask for it and pass it along to you. You can them speak with the driver and mail them a check. It is as simple as that. If she can not directly hand them the cash you need to step in and send it for her with a note informing them of the basis.

Seriously? Please understand I am not a moron. I have gone down these flipping rabbit holes before. If you do not understand it is not so much about compensation, rather, I want his employers or the world to acknowledge him. I will figure it out
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
It previously appeared that you were talking about financial compensation. Now I see you are talking about public recognition. The drivers work off of ratings and comments within Uber and are essentially independent contractors. You can speak and email Uber to recognize the driver but if you want the world to know, you need to go on public forums on the internet that discuss Uber and rave about his service. You can also contact local publications and see if they would do a story on this driver and how he exceeds what should be done. I understand that you want the world to know about him but that would come from the effort YOU make to share the story of him and what he does for your mother.
