Uber now includes the option to schedule a ride 15 minutes to 30 days in advance using the Scheduled Rides feature.
HOW SCHEDULED RIDES WORK
The Scheduled Rides feature allows you to select a 15 minute pickup window for a driver to come pick you up. A driver will be requested on your behalf before the start of your 15 minute window so that it arrives in the window and you're on your way to your destination. Scheduling a ride in advance does not guarantee you'll be connected with a driver. In the rare case a driver cannot be found, you'll be notified at the end of your selected time window.
HOW TO SCHEDULE
1. Tap the car icon with the clock located just to the right of the "Where to?" bar
Select a date and a 15-minute window of time
2. Tap SET PICKUP TIME
3. The pickup location will automatically set to your current location. Tap "Current Location" to edit the pickup location. You'll have to move where the cursor is set.
4. Set your destination
5. Review your fare estimate and tap SCHEDULE.
CHANGING OR CANCELLING YOUR RIDE
1. In the app menu, tap Your Trips.
2. Select Upcoming
3. Select EDIT TIME or CANCEL RIDE
You can change or cancel your request at any point before being matched with a driver without any charge. Normal cancellation fees apply once you have been connected with a driver.
WHERE & WHEN IS THIS AVAILABLE?
You can schedule a ride in nearly all cities where Uber is available. Check your app to see if Scheduled Rides is available in your area.
You can use Scheduled Rides for trips to the airport, but they are not currently available when leaving an airport. If you're leaving an airport you can still request a ride on-demand as you normally would.
Scheduled Rides are available at all times of the day.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Scheduled Rides are priced exactly like a normal Uber ride, and are subject to pricing - based on demand - at the time the ride is scheduled for. If dynamic pricing is in effect, you'll be notified via push notification of your updated fare estimate when your request begins.
