Scheduled rides are available for pick-ups in select areas within
Your driver should arrive within the pickup window provided to you when you scheduled your ride. Once the driver has arrived, you will be notified and your driver will wait 5 minutes for you to meet the car.
Scheduled Rides are priced exactly like a normal ride and subject to pricing conditions at the future time when the booking is confirmed. Surge pricing may apply. You will be notified if surge pricing is in effect before you ride and be given an option to cancel without a cancellation fee.
Scheduled Rides are available for UberX in all of the cities where the Scheduled Ride feature is available, as well as UberXL in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast, and UberSelect in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
No problem. You can cancel anytime before you get confirmation that your car is on the way to pick you up and, when it's on the way, you can cancel up to 2 minutes (per our normal policy) without a cancellation fee.
Once you’ve scheduled your ride, you’ll receive an email confirmation and you’ll also be able to see your upcoming rides in the trips section of your app menu. Your ride has only been confirmed once your car is on the way and you receive the driver's details through the app.
Uber monitors availability to ensure that a car will arrive during the period you schedule a ride, but cannot guarantee your scheduled ride. If a car cannot be found, you’ll be notified immediately, just like a normal trip.
When you schedule a ride using the Scheduled Ride function the Uber app will make a request on your behalf ahead of your scheduled pickup window to try to ensure that you have a ride available. Use of the Scheduled Ride function does not guarantee that a ride will be available and/or that your driver will arrive at the specified time. Your booking is not confirmed until Uber has sent you the details of your booking and the estimated time of arrival. In the event a car is not available Uber will let you know by the end of your scheduled pickup window.
