Subscribers also get five percent off additional rides, an added perk.

The new "All-Access Plan" is rolling out nationwide in the United States beginning today, and it will soon be available to all customers by the end of this week. The ride-hailing service on Tuesday announced the Lyft All-Access plan, a pre-paid subscription that offers 30 rides per month valued at up to $15 each.

The plan applies to all ride types, including Lyft XL offering room for up to six passengers, Lyft Lux for high-end cars, Lux Black for "an ultra-high-end black auto piloted by a top driver", and Lux Black XL for a luxury SUV with room for six.

Can Lyft convince stubborn Seattle commuters to ditch their cars? Available to everyone in the United States by the end of the week, Lyft's All-Access Plan lets you plunk down a chunk of change each month for access to "free" rides. If you don't use all of your rides in a month, any rides you didn't use will be forfeited and you'll start anew the next month.

Lyft has become the latest company to be bitten by the subscription bug.

Essentially, that makes the $300 subscription useful mostly to commuters, who in theory, would use the ride-share service throughout the work week. For perspective, an Empower study published by Business Insider calculated that the average millennial rider in Seattle spends $53 per month on Lyft. If you find yourself in the back seat of a Lyft for a large majority of your month, you stand to save a good chunk of change.
