ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Uber officials announced a new lost-item fee that will go in effect for most major cities by August.

Previously, drivers of the ride-sharing company could deliver lost items back to rider and solely rely on a tip as a courtesy.

The lost item fee will cost $15 and will go directly to the driver.

St. Louis will begin the new feature in August, as a way to compensate the drivers.

Chicago and Boston are two cities where the fee already applies.
