Frequently asked questions
Where are scheduled rides available?
You can schedule a ride in nearly all cities where Uber is available. Check your app to see if the feature is available in your area.
How much do scheduled rides cost?
Scheduled Rides pricing is similar to on-demand trip pricing and is based on duration, distance, traffic, and demand. When you schedule a ride at least 60 minutes in advance, your price will be locked in ahead of time. If you schedule less than 60 minutes in advance, you’ll receive a fare estimate will be notified via push notification if your fare has changed when your driver is assigned to you.
What if I need to cancel my scheduled ride?
No problem. Cancel up to 5 minutes after your scheduled ride is on the way without a cancellation fee. Canceling your scheduled ride after 5 minutes will result in our standard cancellation fee.
Can I schedule a pickup from an airport?
Scheduling a ride from an airport is currently not possible due to several difficult-to-account-for variables like flight delays, time from gate to pickup area, and picking up checked luggage. Ordering an Uber on-demand ride is a great option when being picked up from one of the 300+ airports on 6 continents that Uber serves.
What is the Scheduled Rides Pickup Guarantee?
When you schedule at least 30 minutes in advance of your trip, your driver will arrive to pick you up before the end of the 10 minute window you specify, or you’ll automatically receive a $10 Uber credit for use on a future trip(s). The Pickup Guarantee only applies to UberX, XL, Select, Black, and SUV. Please be ready to leave when your driver arrives.
In what scenarios does the Scheduled Rides Pickup Guarantee apply?
If your driver arrives to pick you up after the end of the 10 minute window you’ve specified, you’ll receive a $10 credit regardless of whether you cancel or take your trip. In the extremely rare event no driver is available for your trip, you’ll be notified and will also receive a $10 credit.
In what scenarios will I not receive a credit?
You won’t receive a credit if your trip was scheduled less than 30 minutes in advance, or if your trip was scheduled for a vehicle other than an UberX, XL, Select, Black, or SUV. You won’t receive a credit if your driver was en route and you canceled your trip. Riders are eligible for a maximum of five $10 credits within 30 days resulting from the Scheduled Rides Pickup Guarantee. If a rider experiences more than five late pickups in 30 days, they will no longer receive a $10 credit for late pickups.
Options vary based on your city and region.
