Official Page for Chicago: https://www.lyft.com/pass/2016-10...SS-LINE-4W (must login with your Lyft Account).

I'd think that it may be available for other Cities as well. So do some research. It's not something that's publicly advertised by Lyft yet I guess. I googled it but nothing came up. Maybe in a few days?

Introducing the Lyft Line Commuter Pass for Chicago
Get four weeks of Line rides for one low price of $55. At 40 rides, that's just $1.38 each.

ON SALE UNTIL 10/1 — LIMITED AVAILABILITY
Four-Week Pass for Chicago

I don't know how this didn't blow up, it's fantastic. I just bought it since I'm in Chicago. It's about half price for me if I get a Lyft during non-peak times, but it's excellent for peak pricing. Now I don't have to worry about the price! TU and reps to you.

Lyft sucks. I have used it couple of times and takes forever to get a line car and once you get one they try to drive around to get another passenger. The wait times are horrible as the app shows a nearby car but it really doesn't exists. Waiting for a class action on ghost drivers

I think this a super YMMV comment. Those "ghost cars" are actual drivers who dont want to pick up someone requesting lyft line. The same thing happens on uber as well. I live in a major city and in my neighbourhood lyft has way better coverage. I use lyft line 10-15 times in any given week and it has been pretty consistently solid. The few times it has gone bad and I cancelled they refunded the fee where uber would not.

Awesome deal! Thanks for posting.

Okay that makes sense but why would they disappear and not take a ride?

When you go forward with the lyft line it only shows the driver you are paired to. If they disappear and you are still on the same screen, it is because they have taken another fair.

As for not taking the ride, I assume they make less money on your typical line? I honestly dont know but I will ask.

I agree - everybody's experience is different. It's YMMV. At least from my own experience, I've always had better luck with Lyft. The last 2 times I used Uber again, I always came across issues. So for me, Lyft > Uber by much. And in some cities, Lyft's coverage may still be limited so taking Uber may make more sense there.

UberPOOL allows up to 4 different riders sharing the same car, whereas Lyft Line limits it to 2 or 2+1 riders. So depending on your luck, with Uber, you could be sharing with a lot more riders = longer ride time as well. In my experience, at least 50% of the times I've requested Lyft Line, I was always a solo rider.

I've been in UberPools with four people. It is super uncomfortable, but it's always been a 2+2 situation. Uber will definitely pick up three different riders here in Chicago. Usually Lyft picks up two separate riders, or like you said, it might be a 2+1 situation.

I like Lyft a bunch more than Uber, even though a lot of the drivers I see work for both companies. I also enjoy that I can tip on Lyft if I had great service. But when I'm pressed for time and there is surge pricing on Uber, it's usually non-peak for Lyft, and vice versa. In my neighborhood, I can get a Lyft (Line or single) in three minutes max, Uber can be up to eight minutes. But again, YMMV, I'm in a popular neighborhood in a big city, there's always tons of cars around.

Yup, I completely understand your situation. And in my experience, in most cases, I always get a cheaper estimated fare with Lyft. Uber games Prime Time a lot more often. For example, when it rains lightly, I can probably still get a Lyft ride with no or just 25% Prime Time whereas with Uber, it's probably 75% or more.
