Can I Schedule an Uber?

Hey guys,
Will I be able to use your API to schedule a vehicle say in 3 hours from now, or say for tomorrow at 11:15am?

    Hi Vastra- We currently don't have an endpoint that schedules a ride in the way that you are describing. Uber is an on-demand service, but I can definitely see used case for that. Perhaps you can somehow build something that helps solve that scenario?

    Thanks for the quick reply. Instead of building this myself, I am trying to connect with this developer, who intends to do just that: http://www.producthunt.com/posts/bumper

    Hi Vastra- Not a problem. That developer has also entered this hackathon as well, but glad that you also found him. Best of luck throughout the hackathon. Excited to see what all of you build.

    Vastra - you might also want to look into Iron.io's IronWorkers. You can schedule a future task (like making a request) for a specific time in the future and return a success / error response. I use it to schedule SMS messages.

    Thanks, Neal. Scheduling is already built into my app. However, as you can see in this discussion ( http://uberhackathon.challengepost.com/forum_topics/4482-will-uber-pick-up-packages ), hacking on packages is a no-no for this hackathon. So am testing my app on anther platform.
