Uber Ride Pass is a sort of subscription service for Uber.

In cities where Uber Ride Pass is available, it’s $24.99 a month, and all of your rides within a designated areas of that city are price protected, regardless of the time of day, weather, traffic, or any other circumstance. This means that no matter how surged Uber prices are in your area, you will only ever see the standard, lower price.

This is similar to Uber Rewards, a loyalty program that can let you price protect one ride, on a designated route. So if you only ever take an Uber, say, to and from work, and nowhere else, you probably don’t need Uber Ride Pass. But if you’re someone who takes Ubers a lot, to a lot of different places, it’s definitely something you should look into getting.
