    Default simple or future progressive

    Which one would you say? Which one is more grammatically accurate?

    1)"I was wondering if there is someone to pick you up after classes?"

    OR

    2)"I was wondering if there is going to be someone to pick you up after classes?"

    OR

    3)"I was wondering if someone's picking you up after classes?"

    I would choose #3, it's shorter and to the point.
