Lyft's new Scheduled Rides might help you make your flight

Now you can schedule a Lyft trip ahead of time.


"Can I make a reservation?" Until now, most ride-hailing services have said no. But this summer, Lyft is rolling out a new feature called Scheduled Rides to let you plan trips up to 24 hours in advance.

The trips will work identically to a normal Lyft booking, according to an Lyft spokesperson, only now you can schedule them ahead of time. There's no extra charge for a Scheduled Ride, though there will be a minimum fee for the trip. Lyft is still testing how surge pricing might affect a scheduled booking.

If you need to cancel, you can do so up to 30 minutes before your reservation. You also won't have to worry about a car showing up with other passengers already seated -- Scheduled Rides will be exclusive to you and your party, said a Lyft rep.


While Uber and other major ride-hailing startups haven't offered reservations in the past, the Flywheel app, used by the taxi industry, added the ability to advance-book airport trips back in 2014.
