Scheduled rides for riders

When possible, you can plan ahead by scheduling a ride up to 30 days ahead of time. When you schedule a ride, you’ll specify your pickup time. 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.
