Uber has announced a new subscription service to help customers avoid price surging.
Titled "Ride Pass", the new service is only available in five U.S. cities at the moment.
According to the BBC , the service costs $24.99 a month in Los Angeles and $14.99 in Austin, Denver, Miami and Orlando. Uber says the service will expand to other U.S. cities in 2019.
"We want to make Uber a reliable alternative to driving yourself - an affordable option people can use for their everyday transportation needs," product manager Dan Bilen said.
The ride-sharing company says users will save up to 15 percent a month when subscribing to "Ride Pass."
