According to Green, a subscription to Lyft could cost something along the lines of $200, which gets you 1,000 miles of traveling around. “You rely on the Lyft network for all your transportation needs,” he said.
Uber tested its own subscription service in a number of cities in 2016, but its unclear whether that experiment went anywhere.
Lyft often fancies itself a think tank with big ideas about the future of transportation. Green and Lyft’s president John Zimmer have released policy papers predicting the end of personal car ownership in major cities by 2025, and calling for more people to carpool by charging a fee to those who don’t. Recently they advocated for American households to sell their second cars as a way to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions. Of course, all of these high-minded policy prescriptions also include the unspoken recommendation to spend more money on Lyft rides.
Update March 15th, 6:37pm ET: A Lyft spokesperson said that the company had been testing all-access passes for several months now. “We’re always testing new ways to provide passengers the most affordable and flexible transportation options,” the spokesperson said. “For the past few months, we’ve been testing a variety of All-Access Plans for Lyft passengers.”
