"Tipping Taxi Drivers" Information / Sources Tip by guell

Information / Sources, San Francisco: 64 reviews and 66 photos

Favorite thing: There is no set rule. I can only tell you what I do. I typically give a minimum of 15% and round up to the nearest $5. It?s so much easier this way. For example a $3.90 fare becomes $5.00, a $7.50 fare becomes $10, a $17.00 fare becomes $20.00 and so on. So, it?s more than 15%, but considering what these drivers make for a living, I don?t mind.

Remember to talk to your drivers. They are usually very friendly and helpful.
