One of the annoying downsides of using a ride-sharing service is sometimes there’s no one sharing their ride when you need one. If you’ve got to get to the airport or a meeting, that can ruin your day. Lyft is currently looking to combat this frustration by testing a new scheduled rides program in San Francisco.
Lyft’s scheduled rides allow you to reserve a car for a specific time within a 24-hour window, for a small extra fee of course. Just set your pickup location, when you want a pickup, and you’re set. Rides can be canceled up to 30 minutes before their scheduled time.
If the trial run in San Francisco is successful Lyft has plans on expanding the program to more cities this summer.
