If you use Lyft to get around, the company just made their service even more useful. They recently started testing a new feature that lets you schedule your rides up to 24 hours in advance.
In a blog post, Lyft announced:
When it comes to getting around, passengers tell us they sometimes want the extra peace of mind to schedule a ride in advance. So today, we’re excited to start testing a new feature that allows passengers to schedule rides up to 24 hours in advance.
Whether you have an early-morning flight and need to get to the airport or have a make-or-break business meeting cross-town, scheduled rides will get you out the door and off to your destination at your specified pickup time.
To use the feature, just tap the clock icon when selecting your pickup location. You’ll be prompted to set a time, and your ride will be scheduled. You can make changes or cancel your ride up to 30 minutes before the requested time.
