We love us some Uber, what is not to love about the ride sharing app that has literally transformed the way we get around. The service first launched in Australia in 2012 and has since gone from strength to strength and has totally left the taxi industry shaking in their boots.
However, up until now the only feature that taxis had over Uber was the ability to be pre-booked in advance by setting a date/time for the future. That is all set to change though, as Uber has just unveiled their latest and we think GREATEST feature which allows you to do just that!
According to PEDESTRIAN.TV. an Uber spokesperson spoke out about their decision why they finally added this feature.
"Scheduled Rides is the top-requested feature from our riders. Even though we pride ourselves on providing on-demand rides, we totally get it. If you’ve got somewhere to be at a very specific time, it’s nice to have extra assurance that a ride will be available when you need it. So whether it's a 4am trip to the airport or early morning meeting on a Monday, with just a few taps to the app, riders are able to schedule an Uber ride for as little as 15 minutes to as many as 30 days in advance.”
To enable this new feature, all you have to do is tap "Schedule a Ride"choose your time, location and destination that you wished to be picked up from and then it's locked in! This feature is currently only available in the below areas.
