Schedule a Pick-up Ahead of Time
Uber now offers an on-time scheduled pickup guarantee that allows you to book a ride up to 30 days in advance. To book in advance, reserve a 10-minute window within which you want your pick-up. You can schedule the arrival time anywhere between 30 minutes and 30 days ahead.
Communicate with Your Drive Safely
To help you communicate with your driver without taking their attention off of the road, we’ve made sending a message simple. Now it’s even easier to share an easy-identification tip (i.e., what you are wearing) or send your driver a quick pre-populated update like “be right there” with a single tap. Your message is read aloud, and drivers can simply tap to respond.

When you’re in crowded pick-up areas or it’s nighttime, it can be hard for you and your driver to find one another. With Spotlight, you can light up your phone with a special color specific to your driver. Your driver will receive a message telling them what color to look for, so you can just hold your phone in the air. For Uber drivers with the Beacon feature, the light in his vehicle will display the same colour/
To use the new features, you’ll simply need to update the Uber app on your phone. If you’re not already an Uber user, you can get up to $15 off of your first ride with this link.
