Is there a way to schedule an early morning ride from Lyft ahead of time?
The Guru Take
Yes, you can schedule Lyft rides in advance!
In your Lyft app, when selecting your pickup location there is an option to set a desired time for pickup. All you have to do is click on the icon and Lyft will automatically schedule your ride for the desired time. Once you schedule your ride, Lyft will "lock" the price to make sure you are not paying more.
You can schedule a ride up to 7 days before your desired day of pickup, and if you want to cancel your scheduled ride, Lyft will allow you to cancel up to 30 minutes before your trip without a cancellation fee.
Here are two related and common questions around Uber/Lyft scheduled rides:
- No car/clock icon and am unable to schedule an advance trip on Uber. Help please
- Does booking in advance or scheduling ahead guarantee my fare on Uber and Lyft?
