Ride hailing service company Uber is now offering a “Ride Pass” subscription service in five US cities, starting at $14.99 a month. Subscribers can use it to lock in consistent, low prices for any ride, anywhere in the city, any time of day, and the subscription can be auto-renewed or cancelled at any time.m
The package is meant to protect riders against surge pricing so customers can plan rides “without any unwelcome surprises,” the company said in a statement. Customers can save up to 15% per ride with the new plan, it added.
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.
