Uber Introduces Scheduled Rides to Let You...Schedule a Ride

...

If there is one feature that Uber has desperately needed since launch, it would be the ability to schedule a ride. The thought here is that you probably know ahead of time that you’ll need a ride, but you don’t necessarily want to deal with last minute requests and would instead like to set something up ahead of time, you know, to cross it off the list of “Sh*t to do before my trip.”

Today, Uber is introducing Scheduled Rides globally. As the name suggests, you can now schedule a ride with Uber anywhere from 30 minutes to 30 days in advance. 

To schedule a ride, from within the app, you’ll tap on uberX and then “Schedule a Ride.” From there, you can choose a pickup date, location and destination. Once confirmed, you’ll see reminders both 24 hours and 30 minutes in advance.

This is how it will look.

Because this feature is new and has also been so highly requested by business travelers, Uber is giving Business Profiles priority access to start.
