SINGAPORE 13 JULY: Are you a frequent rideshare user? Always wondered how to make drivers day a little better (apart from tipping)? Well wonder no more, with this article we share with you 4 best ways to make the trip you’re being driven enjoyable for the driver as well!

1. Check their glove compartments.

Drivers will sometimes forget important bits of information that they’ve kept in their glove compartments. For example, an insurance payment letter that they’ve quickly put away as the light turns green at a traffic light. Open their glove compartment and fish around for whatever might be inside. If you find something you like, keep it! Rideshare fares aren’t cheap anyway, and this goes a little way to help cover the cost for you.

2. Turn that radio dial.

Go ahead and turn their radio dial to a station you like. Nobody likes to listen to the same playlist all day, especially drivers as they’ve been listening to the same radio station cycle DJs and top hits every half an hour for essentially the same aural garbage. Justin Bieber for the 4th time this hour? No thanks! So go ahead, put on music you like at the volume you’d love because why not? Sharing is caring, and you’ve got caring enough for the whole neighbourhood.

3. Fix the aircon temperature.

When the driver has to be fixated on all the tiny details of driving, they’d be more than happy for you to set the aircon to your liking. As they navigate through the alleys of CBD and meander their course through the highway jam, they’ll need someone to fix the aircon that’s just not at the right skin-feel temperature. Following this tip, they may even give you a 5-star rider review!

4. Take a picture of them when they use their phone.

In most cases, rideshare drivers are too busy looking for more fares and driving to figuratively stop and smell the flowers along the way. Help them to create a memorable collage of their journey in life by taking a picture of them whenever they look down at their phones and meddle with it while driving. This way, you create dozens of happy memories for the drivers while they can concentrate on multitasking while driving.

There you have it! 4 amazing ways to liven up the day of your rideshare driver. Do you have any personal tips? Let us know in the comments!
