We’re sure that most of us have at some point in time forgotten something in someone’s car, whether it be a friend’s car, a taxi, a bus, a train, and so on. For the most part it is usually safe to assume that if it were lost in public transport that you would be considered lucky to get it back, but in the case of Uber, a finder’s fee might make things easier.
Uber seems to have quietly updated its policies in which they are now allowing drivers to charge passengers $15 for returning an item that was lost/forgotten in the car. Prior to this, passengers could always get in contact with their drivers to arrange for a time and place to meet to retrieve your item, but this is hardly convenient and it basically means that during that time, your Driver will lose out on one or two rides. This $15 return fee will basically try to address that by ensuring that drivers get compensated for their time.
