Since Each person will be busy in his own work,It is difficult to schedule Uber during crunch times.So it would be helpful to book a uber ahead of time. Also Even though two friends will be travelling between two common points using Uber,.Since One wont be knowing the schedule/Calendar of the other.They would have to pay up the whole travel cost.
