Lyft is starting to roll out a new feature in its driver app, scheduled pickups up to seven days in advance. Here’s how it works.
Scheduled pickups lets you better your chances of claiming a ride in advance by adding those rides to a personalized list of pickups. You can see estimated fares when available and approximate pickup and drop off locations in advance.
You must sign in and accept your scheduled pickup at the designated time. We’ll send you a notification when it’s time to open the app, go online, and start heading to the rider’s pickup location.
Lyft is currently testing the feature so it’s not available to all drivers yet.
If you drive, have you used the scheduled pickup feature yet?
