    Scheduling a ride

    When possible, you can plan ahead by scheduling a ride up to 7 days ahead of time. When you schedule a ride, you’ll specify your pickup window. We’ll send you a reminder before your pickup.
    If you can't select the 'Schedule' option in the app, scheduled rides may not be available in your area.
    To schedule a ride:
    1. Set your destination, then tap the ‘Plan ahead’ calendar icon on the ride type selection screen.
    2. Tap 'Schedule,' choose a date and time, then tap 'Set pickup time.'
    3. Confirm your pickup and drop-off location, then tap 'Schedule.'
    Note: we can’t guarantee the availability of drivers in your area during your pickup window.

    Cancelling a scheduled ride

    To cancel a scheduled ride:
    1. Tap the calendar icon in the upper right-hand corner of the home screen.
    2. Tap the scheduled ride you want to cancel.
    3. Tap 'Cancel ride' below the details, then tap 'Confirm.'
    Lyft’s normal cancellation policy may apply 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.
