How to View and Manage Scheduled Ride Bookings in Lyft App


The Lyft app allows riders to schedule rides up to 30 days in advance. This can be extremely convenient when you need to book transportation for an early morning flight, important work meeting, or special event.

Scheduling rides ahead of time locks in the fare price and ensures a driver will be available during your requested pickup window. It also prioritizes your ride so you can have peace of mind knowing a car will be there when you need it.

This article explains exactly how to view, edit, and manage scheduled Lyft rides that you’ve booked in advance through the app.

Viewing Scheduled Rides

Viewing your upcoming scheduled rides in the Lyft app is simple.

On iPhone

  • Open the Lyft app
  • Tap the calendar icon in the top right corner
  • You will see a list of any scheduled rides with details including date, time, pickup/drop off locations

On Android

  • Open the Lyft app
  • Tap the calendar icon on the bottom right corner of your screen
  • Upcoming scheduled rides will be displayed

If no rides are scheduled, the calendar icon will not be visible. It only appears when you have an upcoming scheduled ride booked.

Editing or Canceling a Scheduled Ride

Within the Lyft app, you can edit certain details of a scheduled ride or cancel it completely up to 1 hour prior to the pickup time.

To edit or cancel:

  • Open the Lyft app
  • Tap “Trips” on the bottom menu
  • Tap the scheduled ride you want to modify
  • Tap “Edit” or “Cancel”

When editing, you can change the pickup location and pickup time within the allowable window. Other ride details like destination cannot be edited.

If you need to fully cancel the ride, tap “Cancel” and confirm when prompted. Keep in mind a small cancellation fee may apply.

Adding Extra Stops

You can add extra stops to a scheduled ride just like a regular Lyft ride. During the trip:

  • Tap the “+” icon at the top of the ride screen
  • Search and select your additional stop
  • Request the stop from your driver

Remember to ask the driver to end the initial ride before leaving the vehicle for more than 5 minutes. Then you can request another ride when ready to continue.

Receiving Scheduled Ride Reminders and Updates

Lyft sends reminders leading up to scheduled ride pickups so you don’t forget. You will get notifications when:

  • Ride is booked
  • Day before pickup
  • Hour before pickup
  • When driver is en route

Additionally, if the driver is running late, you will receive a notification with an updated ETA.

Real-time updates are also available through Live Activities on iPhone 14 Pro models.

Driver Unavailability and Alternatives

While Lyft prioritizes matching scheduled rides with drivers, they don’t guarantee a driver will always be available right at your scheduled time.

If no drivers accept the ride during the pickup window, you will be notified the ride was canceled. At that point, you can request a new on-demand ride.

As a backup, having a secondary ride option planned, like a rental car or taxi company number, can be wise when scheduling airport transportation.


Scheduling future Lyft rides in advance can provide peace of mind before important events or trips. Following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily view, edit, and manage scheduled rides right from the Lyft app.

Monitoring notifications leading up to the pickup time can alert you to any changes, while having a backup ride plan helps ensure you won’t be stranded if the scheduled ride falls through.

Using Lyft’s scheduled ride feature along with these management tips will have you organized for stress-free travels.
