Lyft Begins Testing Scheduled Rides in San Francisco

The feature allows users to schedule rides up to 24 hours in advance.

Lyft has begun testing a ride-scheduling feature in San Francisco, allowing users to schedule rides up to 24 hours in advance.

To schedule rides, users can select their pickup locations and tap the clock icon on the right side of the screen to set their pickup times. Users can change or cancel their scheduled rides up to 30 minutes before their requested times.

As reported by CNET, there will be no extra charge for a scheduled ride, but “there will be a minimum fee for the trip.” In addition, Lyft is reportedly testing how surge pricing may affect scheduled rides.

For now, Lyft’s ride scheduling feature is available to users in San Francisco, although the company said it will make the feature available to more customers this summer.
