Uber Pass, a monthly subscription service which allows users of the ride-sharing app to pay a monthly fee which then entitles them to discounted rates for Rides and Eats services, is now available across the US - except California, where the firm continues to battle regulators.


The subscription service was first launched in 10 cities on a trial run basis, but has now been expanded to over 200, including New York City, Seattle, St. Louis, Nashville and Columbus.

For a fee of $24.99 a month, users can get 10 per cent off UberX, UberXL, and Uber Comfort rides. They also have the option to get 15 per cent off Uber Black, Uber SUV, and Uber Premier rides.


Uber’s ongoing battle with California regulators means they are unable to expand the service into the city. A recent court ruling ordered Uber to classify all its drivers as employees.


Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has said that the firm are likely to pull its services from California because they do not have enough time to adapt their business model to meet the new regulations.
