Uber customers can now pay a monthly fee of $14.99 for discounted rates for all UberX, Uber Pool and Uber Express Pool rides in a given month. The Uber Ride Pass is now publicly available in select cities. The package is meant to protect riders against surge pricing. Customers can save up to 15% per ride with the new plan.
The plan is available in five cities: Austin, Los Angeles, Denver, Orlando and Miami. In Los Angeles, the subscription service costs $24.99 per month – but the company said riders there will “get additional benefits on e-bikes and scooters with their Ride Pass” for no additional cost.
Earlier this month, Lyft also launched a monthly plan, offering 30 rides to customers for $299.
