Some frequent Lyft users are being offered monthly subscription plans.
The plans have been tested at different price points for the past few months, offering “free” rides for a lump sum up front. Rides are capped at $15, so this is for short, frequent trips — not long-distance trips to the airport.

A Lyft spokesperson said in an email Friday, “We’re always testing new ways to provide passengers the most affordable and flexible transportation options. For the past few months, we’ve been testing a variety of All-Access Plans for Lyft passengers.”
Lyft users posted invite-only emails they received over the past few days. Some were offered a $400 monthly plan for up to 60 rides while others received a weekly $50 plan with seven rides. Another user was targeted with a $300-for-30-rides plan.

Like other extreme users, I’ve been offered a subscription to @lyft. Confusing communications (not sure how much it actually costs for what) between this push message and the links etc.

An interesting email from Lyft – “All-access”plan. $300/month for 30 rides as long as they don’t exceed $15. I’m seeing people being offered different prices. Interesting.

Yet another price point: $199 for 30 rides in a month.

Transportation reporters: Lyft just invited me to a $199 per month all access plan… “With an All-Access Plan, you pay $199 each month and your standard Lyft rides are free (up to $15). ”

The Lyft support account explained that trips over $15 would get charged to the card on file. So no free rides to the airport, but it would be a $15 discount.

The All-Access Plan can be used for longer rides, however the remaining charges will be processed to the card on file.

Lyft didn’t say when or if the subscriptions would become available to everyone, but the company is clearly trying to collect data on what works.
