    Scheduling a ride

    When you schedule a ride, you must specify a pickup window. You can schedule a ride up to 7 days ahead of time.
    1. Set your destination.
    2. Tap 'Schedule' on the ride mode selection screen.
    3. Set your pickup address.
    4. Choose a date and time and tap 'Set pick up time.'
    5. Confirm your pickup and drop-off location, then tap 'Schedule.'
    You’ll get a reminder before your pickup.
    We’ll make your ride available to drivers in the area. We can't guarantee a driver will be available in your area at the specific time the ride is being requested for.

    Cancelling a scheduled ride

    To cancel a scheduled ride:
    • Tap the calendar icon that appears in the right corner.
    • Tap the scheduled ride you want to cancel.
    • Tap 'Cancel ride' below the details.
    • Tap 'Confirm.'
    You can cancel a scheduled ride at any time, but Lyft's normal cancellation fee policy applies if:
    • You cancel the ride after a driver has been matched.
    • The driver is on their way to pick you up.
    • The driver is scheduled to arrive within the designated pickup window.
