Uber is reportedly allowing a small group of business travelers to schedule rides up to 30 days in advance of when they take 'em. Recode is reporting that the option is being rolled out in Seattle, with San Francisco likely next to get the feature. Rather than actually pre-booking a ride, it's simply a way of scheduling the app to call for a pickup at a specific time and location. Naturally, that means you can't avoid surge pricing, so the utility for such a feature is limited to frequent fliers who want one less thing to worry about when they leave the airport.
