Source: Lyft Email Scheduled Rides Are Right on Time The verdict's in: Passengers will take longer trips, especially to the airport, if they can request them in advance. That's why we're now offering scheduled rides with Pittsburgh passengers. Earn more on scheduled rides. Passengers can schedule original Lyft rides only, so you'll see more of those requests. We'll also add any predicted Prime Time to their ride cost, and charge higher cancellation fees. Pick up passengers the same way. Lyft only sends you the request when it's time to head to the pickup location. Simply accept and go, just like any other ride. Stick to the requested time. If you get there early, tap to arrive. We'll alert the passenger while you park in a safe, legal spot. You'll start getting paid once they arrive or at the scheduled time, whichever comes first - and if they run late, you're paid for time spent waiting. To learn more, head to the Hub.
