Uber Scheduled Rides now available in Malaysia

In June, Uber announced the global rollout of Scheduled Rides. The rides are now available in Malaysia from 27 September in Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Penang, Johor Bahru and Kota Kinabalu.

"Scheduled Rides is the top-requested feature from riders, especially for times like early morning trips to the airport. And even though we pride ourselves on providing on-demand rides, we totally get it. When you've got somewhere to be at a very specific time, it’s nice to have extra assurance that a ride will be available when you need it," says Uber in a blog post at https://newsroom.uber.com/scheduledrides/

With just a few taps to the app, riders are able to schedule an uberX ride for as little as 15 minutes to 30 days in advance.

How it works:

Select uberX and tap “Schedule a Ride.”
Set your pickup date, time, location, and destination.

Confirm the details of your upcoming trip and tap “Schedule uberX.” You can cancel at anytime before your ride is on the way.

Uber will send reminders both 24 hours and 30 minutes in advance of the pickup. You’ll be notified after your ride is on the way, as well as whether surge pricing applies.
