There is at least one unlabeled button. Scheduling future trips is currently not possible, though the app had that functionality when it first came out, probably a couple of years ago.

Although the information about the update says that date/time scheduling has been fixed, a VoiceOver can only schedule a trip for right now. A sighted user can schedule future trips.
