Scooter mechanic, once homeless, says cheap rides now help him pay rent - SFChronicle.com
It’s a good problem to have, all things considered. James, 52, paid his rent in full, on his own, this month for the first time since 2015. He earns $22 an hour as a scooter technician at San Francisco’s Skip, one of two companies permitted to offer scooter rentals on city streets through a yearlong pilot program.

James, formerly homeless, is one of a growing number of workers at Skip’s workshop in the Bayview neighborhood who fixes “injured” scooters, as he calls them, before they’re stacked on racks, loaded into vans and dispersed across the city.

Uber pushes back at Lyft with a loyalty program of its own | Mobile Marketer
Uber Rewards has four membership levels — Blue, Gold, Platinum and Diamond — that riders can earn for every six months of participation after the sign-up date. Members earn one point for every eligible dollar spent on UberPool and Uber Eats orders; two points for UberX, UberXL, Select and WAV; and three points for the luxury rides Black and Black SUV.
Each level of membership offers more benefits, including refunds on some cancellation fees, priority customer service support, price protection on favorite routes, reduced pickup times at airports, free food deliveries, luxury rides and access to top drivers. In areas where Uber Rewards isn't yet available, the company is letting users accumulate points that count toward future membership.

Lyft drives repeat ride-hailing with new rewards program | Mobile Marketer
Ride-hailing service Lyft next month will begin testing a loyalty program that lets passengers earn points to redeem for trip upgrades or access to more experienced drivers. The company will invite riders in select cities to participate in Lyft Rewards by email before expanding the program to all users next year, according to a company announcement.
Lyft's app will let members track their accumulated points to see how close they are to receiving a reward, such as an upgrade to Lyft Lux that usually charges more for a ride in a high-end car. The program is also set to offer double-points days and other perks.

Uber Tests Membership Program Ride Pass | PYMNTS.com
In a blog post, the ride-hailing startup said Ride Pass is a new way for riders to lock in a consistent, low price on any ride they take anywhere in the city at any time of the day for a fee of $14.99 a month. “Daily commute or night on the town, traffic or open roads: Ride Pass is designed to take the guesswork out of riding so you can confidently plan your day with Uber without any unwelcome surprises,” wrote Dan Bilen, product manager at Uber, in the blog post. With the membership program, which is available in five cities in the U.S. to start, users can sign up through the app and track their savings on every ride with real-time updates. The service comes with auto-renew and the ability to cancel at any time. Ride Pass will also include e-bikes and scooters in Los Angeles soon for no additional costs.

According to a report in The Verge citing Bilen, Ride Pass is available in Los Angeles, Austin, Orlando, Denver, and Miami. In Los Angeles, the service costs $24.99, noted the report. Riders get to lock in flat rates on all of the UberX and UberPool trips they take during the month with rates discounted. The Verge reported riders can save as much as 15 percent on their monthly travel via Uber with the service. What’s more, members of Ride Pass won’t have to deal with added costs due to weather, traffic or increased pricing. There isn’t a limit on how many rides a customer can take each month either. “We’re really keen to make sure this is priced to the point where people can buy the pass [and] not have to think too much about it,” Bilen told The Verge. “The vision for Ride Pass is it makes Uber a budgeted line-item for riders.”

Lyft Rolls Out All-Access Subscription Plan | PYMNTS.com
Lyft, the ride-hailing company, announced on Tuesday (Oct. 16) that it has launched a new subscription plan that it is calling its All-Access Plan.
In a blog post, Lyft said that with the new subscription plan, passengers pay upfront every 30 days to lock in a set price for their rides. As of Tuesday (Oct. 16), passengers can subscribe to the plan, which will be available to everyone in the U.S. by the end of this week.
With the All-Access Plan, customers get 30 rides (up to $15 each) when they pay one monthly price of $299. The subscription service can be canceled at any time, Lyft noted in the blog post.
“When you spend less time driving (and parking), you have more freedom — and more savings. Americans who use the All-Access Plan for all of their personal car needs can save up to 59 percent per month compared to owning a car,” Lyft said in the blog. “This is the first step toward delivering on our goal of making car ownership optional, and we’re constantly looking for more ways to provide passengers with the easiest, most convenient options possible.”
