Markets in everything – Publications – AEI

Summary:
AEI Markets in everything Lyft is testing monthly subscriptions. There seems to be a couple of plans Lyft is testing out. One costs 9 up front to get 30 free rides worth up to per ride. Another plan costs 9 a month for 60 rides. So, it appears as if Lyft is A/B testing to try to figure out just how much people are willing to pay. MP: At the apartment building where I live in DC, it costs almost 0 per month just for an off-street parking spot. For that monthly parking payment, which doesn’t, of course, include your car payment, insurance or gas, etc., you can get 30 rides with Lyft — seems like a great and affordable alternative to owning a car.   Markets in everything Mark Perry
