About scheduled rides

Currently, scheduled rides are available for original Lyft, not other ride modes.

When you schedule a ride, you must specify a pickup timeframe. A driver will arrive in the pickup window you choose. You can schedule a ride up to 7 days ahead of time.

You can cancel a scheduled ride at any time, but if you cancel within 30 minutes of a driver’s scheduled arrival, you'll be charged a $10 cancellation fee.

Prime Time & scheduled rides

We predict what Prime Time will be at the time you schedule your ride.

When you confirm your ride request, Prime Time is locked at that rate. Even if Prime Time is higher or lower at the actual pickup time, your Prime Time amount is the same as the original estimate.
