Lyft Subscription Service

Today Lyft announces that their "trial" subscription service it going mainstream and for $299.00 a month you can receive up to 30 trips with a value of $15.00 for each trip.  After that, and for trips exceeding $15, you pay the difference but also receive a 5% discount.

Does this work for you?  Clearly it saves money, and for those that use it daily, an awesome plan, but how do you think it will be received by the younger bar crowd?

    I wonder how long it will take for a group of friends to share one lyft account and take advantage of the subscription offering...

    Lyft is trying to make it so people will use them for everything, essentially replacing public transportation.

    This makes no sense to me. $15 times 15 trips equals $225. For the subscription you have to pay $299? I get you get 5% off after but it still seems like a pretty bad deal to me.

      exactly, makes no sense. Uber in Philly has Uber Philly Pass, people snatch them up within minutes because it actually makes sense for those who take Uber daily

        It's 30 trips up to $15 each for a value up to $450 for $299

      It's 30 trips with a value up to $15 each, so that would be $450 for only $299

        that's better :), I guess frequent passengers (commuters) would need to analyze a few months of their monthly spend and future projections to see if it makes sense. I am certains that the ones that rely on rideshare quite a bit and especailly that in some markets they tend to use Lyft more than Uber already as Lyft appears to be chaper it would make very good financial sense

    By going mainstream, do you mean it is open everywhere? I thought it was jsut specific cities?

      According to TechCrunch magazine, it's rolling out nationally TODAY.  I would assume if you have the passenger app you will likely get a notice.  I haven't seen one yet on my APP.
