Uber to allow London customers to book cars in advance

Londoners will initially only be able to hail an UberX taxi, which is usually a Toyota Prius, although Uber could expand the scheduled ride offering to Uber Lux and Uber Exec in future, allowing passengers to ride in more expensive cars.

Before the upcoming rollout to the general public, Uber is now making scheduled rides available to customers with an Uber for Business account or a Business Profile.

Business customers of Uber can use the booking in advance feature from today, but other customers will have to wait two weeks.
