Finally, Uber riders can schedule Uber ride based upon their availability! Since Uber’s magic of “push a button and get a ride” launched 6 years ago, people have valued the ability to access rides on-demand through Uber. But Uber has also heard from their riders that sometimes they want to schedule a pickup in advance so they can rest assured an Uber will be available when they need it, even if it’s for a 4AM ride to the airport. Uber totally gets it, and that’s why today Uber is starting the global roll out of Scheduled Rides. With just a few taps on your app, you can schedule your ride 30 minutes to 30 days in advance and have the comfort of knowing your Uber will be there when it’s time to head out. Since the option to schedule a ride is a top-requested feature from business travelers, Uber is excited to give priority access to riders who have Business Profiles or are linked to their company’s Uber for Business account. Here’s what Zillow Group, an Uber for Business customer, has to say about this new feature:
“Zillow Group employees already love Uber for Business and we’re excited they now have the option to schedule an Uber in advance. Scheduled Rides will improve the business travel experience for our employees, especially when they want extra assurance a ride will be there when they need it.”
Here is how schedule Uber ride works:
- Select uberX and tap “Schedule Uber Ride.”
- Set your pickup date, time, location, and destination.
- Confirm the details of your upcoming trip and tap “Schedule uberX.” You can edit or cancel at any time before your ride is on its way.
- Uber will send you reminders both 24 hours and 30 minutes in advance of your pickup. You’ll be notified after your ride is on the way, as well as whether surge pricing applies.
The global rollout of Scheduled rides starts today in Seattle, with other top business travel cities coming soon. Here’s what Microsoft has to say about Schedule Rides starting out in their backyard:
“Seattle has grown into one of the world’s great technology markets, and we’re excited to see Uber launch new and innovative features here first. With scheduled rides, Uber is continuing to help us all make the most of our time.”
