Depending on the type of vehicle you choose, Lyft lets you plan a ride up to seven days in advance. Not only can you schedule a Lyft ride, but you can also view the list of scheduled rides you have in the Lyft app. This feature can be especially handy when you want to see if your Lyft ride has been confirmed or if you need to cancel it.
In this guide, we'll show you how to view your scheduled rides on the Lyft mobile app. We'll also cover the process of scheduling and canceling a Lyft ride.
How to View Scheduled Rides in Lyft on the iPhone App
The list of scheduled rides on the Lyft app may not always be available. It mainly depends on your region and the driving mode you have chosen. Only certain types of driving modes are compatible with the planning function (Lux, Lux Black, XL and Lux Black XL). If you've chosen one of these ride modes and the schedule feature is available in your area, you'll be able to use it on the Lyft mobile app.
To view your scheduled rides in Lyft on your iPhone, follow the steps below:
- Launch the Lyft app on your iPhone.
- Go to the calendar icon in the upper right corner of your screen.
- Consult the list of your scheduled races.
For each scheduled trip, you will be able to see the exact time and date of the trip, estimated time of arrival, your destination and other details. The "Schedule" icon will only appear on your app if you have scheduled a trip. If you have no scheduled route, or if you have used a scheduled route, it will disappear.
How do I view scheduled rides in Lyft on the Android app?

That's all we can say about it. If scheduled rides aren't available in your area, Lyft will notify you when you attempt to book one. If you're not sure if Lyft's scheduled ride feature is available in your city, you can check here.
How to View Scheduled Rides as a Lyft Driver
When a passenger requests a scheduled Lyft ride, drivers receive a notification on the Lyft app. They can then accept a scheduled ride request, which will tell them the pickup location, destination, and estimated revenue. Prior to the scheduled ride time, the driver will receive a notification from Lyft that it is time to go to the pickup location.
To view rides scheduled as a Lyft driver, follow the steps below:
- Open the Lyft app on your mobile device.
- Go to your profile picture in the upper left corner of your screen.
- Switch to the "Scheduled Withdrawals" tab.
- Tap "My Pickups".
- See all your scheduled trips.
If you want to add another scheduled ride on the Lyft app, follow these steps:
- Return to the "Schedule Pickups" tab.
- Browse your list of scheduled ride requests.
- Tap the scheduled trip you want to accept.
- Select "Confirm" to add a pickup option.
That's all you need to do to accept a scheduled trip. When it's time to go to the pickup destination, you'll receive a notification from the Lyft app. If you are offline when you receive this notification, then the scheduled ride will be transferred to another Lyft driver. This can also happen if you are not close enough to the pick-up location at the scheduled travel time.
If you want to remove a scheduled pickup as a Lyft driver, return to the "Scheduled Pickups" tab. Go to the 'My Withdrawals' tab, find the ride you want to cancel and tap on the 'Cancel Withdrawal' option. Keep in mind that if you cancel a scheduled ride, your acceptance rate will not be affected.
How do I plan a ride on Lyft?
The process of planning a ride on the Lyft app is relatively simple. Moreover, it will only take you about a minute. Here's how it's done:
1. Open the Lyft app on your mobile device.
2. Under "Where are you going?" » section, enter your destination.
3. Choose the "Schedule" button in the lower right corner of your screen.
4. Enter your pickup location.
5. Select "Confirm Pickup".
6. Choose the time and date for your scheduled Lyft ride.
7. Tap "Set Pickup Time".
8. Go to the "Schedule" button.
It is more or less that. To make sure your Lyft ride has been booked, go to the calendar icon in the upper right corner of your screen. You can schedule a Lyft ride up to 30 minutes before and up to seven days before your travel date.
About 10 minutes before your scheduled ride, Lyft will remind you of the pickup time.
Once you request a scheduled ride, you will be matched with a Lyft driver who will be available at that time. However, there is no guarantee that there will be a driver available at the time of your scheduled journey.
How do I cancel a scheduled ride on the Lyft app?
While there's no option to change the time or date of your scheduled ride on the Lyft app, you can cancel it. To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Open the Lyft app on your mobile device.
2. Tap the calendar icon in the upper right corner of your screen.
3. Locate the trip you want to cancel.
4. Select the “Cancel trip” option.
5. Confirm that you want to cancel your scheduled trip.
If you want to reschedule a Lyft ride, the only way to do so is to cancel it and reschedule it.
Although you can cancel a scheduled Lyft ride at any time, you will incur additional charges if you cancel the scheduled ride after being paired with a Lyft driver. If the Lyft driver is en route to your pickup location at the time of cancellation, you must also pay the cancellation fee.
Manage all your scheduled rides with Lyft
Not only can you schedule a Lyft ride, you can also view all of your scheduled rides in the Lyft app. If you don't have any scheduled trips or are not in an area that offers the service, the "Scheduled Trips" icon will not be there. You can also cancel your scheduled Lyft rides, but you may have to pay a cancellation fee.
