How Scheduled Rides Work

  1. On your website or application, tap on the button saying "schedule" or "now" on your screen. The button is located to the right of the "where to?" button.
  2. On the page that follows, select the date of your planned travel. In addition, select the time you wish to have your pick-up. This time is a 10-minute window where the driver can pick you up.
  3. Once you are sure you have the right date and time, set your pick-up time. Click on "Set pick up time."
  4. The location of your pick-up will automatically set to your current location. If you wish to change your pick-up location, tap on "Current Location" to change to your preferred pick-up location.
  5. Set your destination to complete the scheduling process. At this stage, your can review your fare estimation.
  6. Click "Schedule" to finish.
  7. Last but not least, countercheck the information you have entered to affirm you have everything right. The last thing you want is your driver sowing up at the wrong place or time.

How Do I Change My Uber Pick-Up Time?

If you realize a mistake with the time of the pick-up or your planned departure time changes, do not panic. You can head back to the website or the app and change the scheduling in three simple steps.

  1. On the menu, click on "Your Trips." This will direct you to a page with an option, "Upcoming."
  2. Click on "Upcoming" to view all your upcoming trips. Select the trip to want to edit.
  3. Edit the time to your preferred pick-up time. If you want to cancel your entire schedule to create a new one, click on "Cancel Ride." As long as you don't have a driver match, the cancellation of the ride does not have a charge. However, you will incur normal cancellation fees if you had already been matched with a driver.

Uber tries to guarantee you a ride by monitoring all active cars at the requested time. It goes without saying that there more available cars in busy areas and big cities. In the event there are no drivers available at your selected time, you will receive a notification immediately.
