Lyft tests letting users schedule rides up to 24 hours ahead of time
Everything old is new again.
Lyft, one of the leading ride-hailing services in the U.S., announced Monday that it is testing a new option to let customers pre-order rides up to 24 hours ahead of time. The test is currently under way in San Francisco.
The feature — common to traditional car services and a popular request for customers of on-demand startups like Uber and Lyft — will cost users a little extra. The minimum fare will be higher, according to a Lyft spokesperson, with different price points currently being tested.
“While on-demand rides remain core to our platform, we’re thrilled to offer even more options to passengers — as well as another opportunity for drivers to earn,” Lyft said in a statement about the new feature.
