VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Uber users in Hampton Roads will now be able to schedule rides from 30 minutes to 30 days in advance, Uber announced Thursday.

The ‘Scheduled Rides’ feature will begin rolling out to riders in Hampton Roads and will be available to everyone within the next few weeks.


Uber says the feature is one of the top-requested from riders, especially business travelers. Priority access to the feature will be given to riders with Business Profiles or those who are linked to their company’s Uber for Business account.

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.” You can cancel at any time before your ride is on the way.
  • We’ll send you reminders both 24 hours and 30 minutes in advance of your pickup. You’ll be notified after your ride is on the way, as well as whether surge pricing applies.
