Uber Makes Foray Into Advanced Reservations

Posted on June 9, 2016

Uber is no longer only on-demand. Starting June 6, the company is going to roll out an option for customers to book a ride up to 30 days in advance.

The experiment is starting in Seattle and is, so far, limited to riders who have a business profile.The goal is to target those travelers who may be anxious about hailing an Uber at 4 a.m. for a flight or someone who needs to schedule an Uber to be there when they finish a meeting. 

Business travel is just the start, though, and Uber says it plans to make this feature available to all riders eventually.
