I live in a small community in Michigan and dont use ride shares.  My family of 4 will be traveling to Hiram, GA for a wedding and we will need a ride  to and from Atlanta airport.  Our arrival on Saturday around 11:30am should not be a problem, but I was wondering what the chances of getting a ride from Hiram at 4:30am on Sunday back to the airport would be.  Is there a way to schedule this ride in advance?  Should we schedule this in advance?  How long of a wait would there be for the ride to show up?  

Thank you for your advice.

    Scheduling in advance (on Uber) does NOTHING.  It simply places the request in a computer que to request your ride at the indicated time.  If there are no drivers available, you still won't have a car.  With Lyft, the system is different and a driver can accept the trip in advance which is sort of a commitment that they will be working during this time.

    My suggestion would be, prior to the trip, to look at your app at 4 in the morning and see if there are cars available in your area.  If so, you can have reasonable confidence cars will also be available whenever you're actually ready to go on your trip to the airport.
