Last summer, Uber introduced a flat-fee ride package, called Uber Plus, for riders in the Miami area. Despite facing some setbacks abroad, the rideshare giant is still innovating here in the US and is once again offering Uber Plus packages, but to many more cities this time around. For each Uber Plus city, you’ll have the choice of two packages — a 20-ride package with a fee of $10 or a 40-ride package with a fee of $20. After you purchase the package, you’ll lock in rides for a flat fee which varies from one city to the next.
Here’s what you can expect to pay for each ride in each city:
- Boston: $1.99 per UberPool, $4.99 per UberX
- Chicago: $2.49 per UberPool, $4.49 per UberX
- Los Angeles: $1.99 per UberPool, $3.99 per UberX
- Miami: $1.99 per UberPool, $4.99 per UberX
- New York City: $2.99 per UberPool, $5.99 per UberX
- San Diego: $2.99 per UberPool, $4.99 per UberX
- San Francisco: $2.49 per UberPool, $4.99 per UberX
- Seattle: $2.49 per UberPool, $4.49 per UberX
- Washington, D.C.: $2.49 per UberPool, $4.49 per UberX
Note that each flat-fare UberPool or UberX ride is only valid for rides totaling $30 or less, and limits may be lower in some cities. If your ride costs more than the allotted amount, you’ll be responsible for paying the flat fare plus whatever amount you exceeded the maximum by.
Also, if you don’t already have an Uber account, you can sign up here to receive your first ride for free (up to $20) from TPG. Additionally, be sure to sync a credit card with your Uber account that will earn you the most return on your ride, such as the Chase Sapphire Preferred for 2x points per dollar on travel.
