SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diegans will now be able to pay for a Lyft the same way they binge-watch their favorite series.

The ride-sharing company announced Tuesday it is expanding its subscription-style All-Access plan nationwide, allowing customers to pay for a set of discounted rides.

The All-Access Plan will allow users to purchase 30 rides up to $15 each every month for $299. If a ride goes over $15, the rider pays the difference.

Any rides taken after that will be discounted five percent. Rides do not roll over to the next period and riders can cancel at any time.

"This is the first step toward delivering on our goal of making car ownership optional, and we’re constantly looking for more ways to provide passengers with the easiest, most convenient options possible," Lyft writes online.

Lyft claims riders can save up to 59 percent a month compared to owning a car.
