Lyft begins testing scheduled rides in San Francisco

Lyft has begun testing a new feature that will allow customers of the ride-sharing service to schedule pickups as much as 24 hours in advance.

Lyft states:

Whether you have an early-morning flight and need to get to the airport or have a make-or-break business meeting cross-town, scheduled rides will get you out the door and off to your destination at your specified pickup time. Scheduling a ride is easy – when selecting your pickup location, tap the clock icon on the right, set the desired time and we'll schedule your ride. It's that easy. If your plans change, don't sweat it; you can update or cancel your scheduled ride up to 30 minutes before your requested time.

At the moment, the advanced ride scheduling is only available for Lyft customers in San Francisco, but it will expand to more areas later this summer.
