The program is called Lyft Pink and gives American subscribers the right to a 15 percent discount on every ride they make, on airport pick up at the airport and the costs are waived for canceled trips.

Lyft Pink is a new subscription service that is available in the US. For $ 19.99 per month, users receive a 15 percent discount on journeys, no cancellation fees and more.
To gain access, users are currently being asked to submit their emails via a web page on the ride-sharing apps website, after which they are notified when the service is available in their region.
Lyft Pink will not be the company's first subscription, such as a report from Mashable points out.
Last year, the company announced an All-Access subscription, which cost $ 299 a month and gave users 30 rides of a month, worth a maximum of $ 15 for each ride.
When it was announced in October 2018, Lyft promoted the service as a cheaper alternative to owning a car.
Lyft Pink is currently limited to US customers who sign up by sending their email to Lyft via the company's website
For less than the amount that a person could spend each month on car payment, insurance, gas and general maintenance, they could simply subscribe to Lyft.
Lyft Pink will grant subscribers limited use of the company's electric scooters.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN LYFT PINK?
Lyft Pink is a monthly subscription service that is launched by the ride sharing app.
It costs $ 19.95 a month.
Subscribers receive a 15 percent discount on journeys ordered via the app.
Subscribers can also cancel rides without paying a fine.
Pink subscribers receive priority when picking up a Lyft from an airport.
Users also receive limited daily use of electric scooters and electric bicycles from Lyft.
The company did not provide information about how well the All-Access plan was sold, but one review said the plan had significant limitations.
& # 39; If you drive $ 15 or less, you are probably within a few kilometers of your destination, which means that you are likely to & # 39; all have access to the use of a bicycle, your feet and / or public transportation – all of which could cost almost nothing & # 39; GE Miller from 20SomethingFinance wrote.
Miller also criticized the lack of a rollover plan to apply unused journeys from previous months to future months.
The fact that tips were not included in the subscription also meant that users would probably still pay for each ride from their own pocket.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Pink is introduced while All-Access is being phased out.
Lyft Pink subscribers also receive free limited access to Lyft's electric bicycle service
Pink is similar to Ride Pass, a subscription program launched by Uber in 2018.
For $ 24.99, Ride Pass users were guaranteed access to lower prices on eligible routes in UberX and Uber Pool, and were given 30 minutes a day to use Uber's JUMP brand electric scooters and bicycles.
