Uber Nigeria has announced the launch of Scheduled Rides, a feature which allows riders to schedule their rides in advance.
The feature lets riders schedule their ride 15 minutes to 30 days in advance with an Uber coming to pick them up on the date & time specified.
This is how it works
- Select uberX and tap “Schedule a Ride.”
- Set your pickup date, time, location, and destination.
- Confirm the details of your upcoming trip and tap “Schedule uberX.”
Uber will send riders reminders both 24 hours and 30 minutes in advance of their pickup and notification once their ride is on the way.
Riders who changes their minds due unforeseen circumstances can cancel the scheduled rides anytime as long as the Uber is not yet on the way.
This feature is being launched following feedback from riders who thought it’ll be wise to have reliable pickups, even if it’s 4:00 AM, for certain occasions.
