If you're the type of person who pretends your ride-sharing app is actually your own personal chauffeur named Jeeves, then Lyft has the service for you.
The ride-sharing giant just announced a new subscription plan—for $299 a month, you get access to 30 rides of $15 or less, according to TechCrunch.
Assuming you actually take 30 Lyfts a month (and they all cost around 15 bucks) then it's actually a pretty good deal; you're getting roughly 33 percent off of your monthly Lyft bill. But there are some caveats: If your ride costs more than $15, you pay the difference. And if you take more than 30 rides in a month, then the extras are only discounted a measly five percent. And unlike those annoying AT&T commercials, these rides do not rollover.
With a plan that promises "No parking. No guesswork," it seems like Lyft is offering its service as an alternative to owning a car, especially in urban areas. Given that the average monthly car payment is now $523, an all-time high according to CNBC, Lyft's plan could serve as a significantly cheaper—if imperfect—alternative to copping that new Tesla.
This service got us thinking… Who are these people taking 30 Lyfts a month? And what would you do if you could ride-share once a day? We came up with three scenarios that people trying out the service could easily find themselves in.
