Is there *really* no tipping with Uber?

I just signed up for Uber and I want to do right by the driver. A service charge is included, and the web site says "no need to tip." Is tipping really

I plan on using Uber to travel ~15-20 miles across L.A. (not during rush hour) for an estimated cost of $25-$30 and I have a $20 credit to apply to that trip. I can't imagine getting out of the car after 30 or 40 minutes, being charged $5, and not tipping the driver!
I would normally tip 20% for services like this, and if my bill is basically comped and the service is really good I might tip much more than 20% (of the full total, of course.) I know tipping is not required, but should I tip anyway? Tip a couple of dollars? I need good car-ma!
