During bad storms and other events there will be fewer drivers on the road. Causing riders to wait longer for a ride, some riders could even wait over an hour before they finally get a driver to pick them up.
During times like this, we recommend riders use the schedule trip feature that is available on both the Uber and Lyft app.
Note: You are able to schedule a ride five minutes before you need to be picked up.
Using this feature during busy times will automatically put you in Uber or Lyft's queue. So when a driver does become available you will be first in line, for scheduled trips take priority over other request.
