How to cancel a scheduled ride

To cancel a scheduled ride:

  • Select the calendar icon that appears in the right corner
  • Locate the scheduled ride you want to cancel
  • Select 'Cancel ride' below the details
  • Select 'Confirm'

You can cancel a scheduled ride at any time, but Lyft's normal cancellation fee policy applies if:

  • You cancel the ride after a driver has been matched,
  • The driver is on their way to pick you up, and
  • The driver is scheduled to arrive within the designated pickup window.

About scheduled rides

In some regions, Lyft offers scheduled rides for standard Lyft, XL, Lux, Lux Black, and Lux Black XL ride modes.

Scheduled rides are not available in all regions, and may not be available for all ride modes in a region.

Scheduled rides aren't always available, but when scheduled rides are available, you will see a small 'Schedule' option on the ride mode selection screen.

When you schedule a ride, you must specify a pickup window. You can schedule a ride up to 7 days ahead of time. You will receive a reminder before your pickup even if a driver has not yet been found. 

To be noted: We cannot guarantee the availability of drivers in your area at the specific time the ride is being requested for.
