    I can't speak "officially" for Uber, nor is this forum authorized by Uber (and no, I am not an employee of Uber or "plant," on this or any other forum, and other than a contractor/driver and occasional passenger/customer, I have absolutely no affiliation with Uber) but here's my $.02....
    I have mixed feelings about this. Conceptually its a good idea. I suppose that drivers would need some way to enter "Cash Paid!" on the app when a ride is finished. This may help multiple riders to split the fare rather via cash instead of splitting through the passenger app. I think that having the cash opportunity will encourage more drivers to accept street hails and completely bypass the Uber system, which could lead to insurance issues when drivers are free-lancing. "I'm an Uber driver (see the U in the windshield?) but my phone is not working; I'll take you but you'll have to pay cash." Rider gets in, they're merrily on their way to the destination, meanwhile the car originally given the pickup request arrives, can't find the passenger and cancels "Rider no-show," passenger is charged cancellation fee, etc.​

    I'm all for giving riders the opportunity to tip via the rider app (similar to what Lyft does) as long as Uber agrees to not take 20% (or whatever %) of the tip.

    $.02 (will this be cash or charge?)
