Uber has added a way for passengers to take a closer look at their passenger rating. In addition, the platform’s Privacy Center gives users a breakdown of all of their previous Uber passenger ratings.

Uber has been using a rating system for years to help its drivers and passengers alike maintain a sense of accountability.

Drivers can rate passengers based on how they act during a ride. And passengers can give ratings to their drivers, so future passengers will know what to expect.

If you notice that you have a lower passenger rating than you would like, you may be wondering how you can improve your score.

Uber shared a list of some of the most common reasons why drivers leave bad passenger ratings. Here are some of the things that you should watch out for.

  • Be respectful – the best thing that you can do to improve your passenger rating is to maintain a high level of respect during all of your rides.
  • Be ready when the driver gets there – drivers don’t want to wait for their passengers when they arrive to pick up.
  • Don’t leave trash behind – drivers don’t want to clean up after you, so make sure you leave the car the way you found it.
  • Don’t slam the door – it can sometimes be too easy to accidentally slam a car door. Keep that in mind at the end of your Uber ride.

Those are some of the tips that you can use to help boost your Uber passenger rating.

If you make sure to follow these guidelines when you catch a ride in an Uber, then more drivers will be likely to give you a 5-star passenger rating.
