Popular ridesharing app Lyft announced in a company website post it was introducing an All-Access subscription plan to its users across all markets—including Dallas-Fort Worth.
Under the plan, users will pay $299 every 30 days for 30 rides up to $15 each. For rides over $15, subscribers are required to pay the difference. If the ride count reaches over the limit, subscribers will earn five percent off any additional trips.
Based on an AAA (American Automobile Association) report, “Your Driving Costs,” Lyft wrote in the post that All-Access plan users could save up to 59 percent each month compared to personal car ownership.
“This is the first step toward delivering on our goal of making car ownership optional, and we’re constantly looking for more ways to provide passengers with the easiest, most convenient options possible,” Lyft wrote.
In an email to Dallas Innovates, the All-Access plan was described as a response to Lyft passenger feedback stating that they were looking for more transportation options. The company believes that moving forward, people will be less likely to own transportation, and instead will subscribe to ride services comparable to the Netflix, ClassPass, or Amazon Prime models for entertainment.
Lyft has already begun signing up All-Access plan users, and the company says it will be available across the U.S. by the end of the week.
Get on the list.
