This time Uber Bringing Monthly 'Member Card'


Uber, an app-based taxi service provider, is launching a monthly 'member card' service in five US cities. Passengers with this special member card can travel at any time at the same cost. Prices for this member will not fluctuate even during peak hours.


The monthly fare for passengers in the city of Los Angeles is set at 24.99. In addition to Los Angeles, the service will be available in four other US cities for 14.99 per month. The service will be rolled out to several more US cities by 2019, Uber said. 


However, for the time being, it is not possible to launch this service in London or other cities in the United Kingdom. Uber hopes the initiative will satisfy passengers and at the same time reduce the cost of passengers leaving their cars.


"We've heard from many customers that the day-to-day planning will reduce costs with this service from Uber," said Dan Billen, the company's product manager. 


It is estimated that Uber users will be able to reduce their current spending by up to 15 percent. This huge offer includes one-month special discounts and fixed rate offers for Uber X, Uber Pool, Uber Express, and Pool Riders in Los Angeles.
