To Review your Scheduled Trips:

  1. Once you’ve booked your trip, select YOUR TRIPS from the Uber App menu:
  2. Then, choose UPCOMING to review all of your scheduled trips. If you need to change or cancel a scheduled trip, select and tap CANCEL.
  3. Great news: you can always cancel a scheduled ride in advance of the pickup time FREE OF CHARGE!

Things to Remember about Scheduled Rides:

A few minutes before your scheduled date and time, Ubre drivers will receive your ride request (just like a normal UberX ride) The driver who accepts this trip request may arrive at your pickup location at any time within your 15 minute window. And, just like always, regular CANCELLATION FEES apply only once you have been connected with a driver.

Uber encourages passengers to be ready for their drivers to arrive ANYTIME with the 15 minute window – so be prepared!

Drivers who CANNOT locate passengers at their intended pickup spots can cancel your schedule ride after 5 minutes (and charge you a cancellation fee)!

Also note: Uber passengers CANNOT CURRENTLY SCHEDULE Uber rides in advance at the Airport.  In other words, Uber’s Scheduled Rides Program does not work at airports (but ordinary Uber services still function at most airports).

Scheduled Rides are also subject to SURGE PRICING – riders will be notified by Uber of a new fare estimate if surge pricing applies at the time of their scheduled ride (i.e., a scheduled ride & its attendant price estimate are not ‘set in stone’, and may increase if there is high demand at the time of your pre-reserved ride).
