Tracking Your Personal Miles

Personal miles are the miles you drive when you’re offline — when you’re not waiting for requests or giving rides —  such as when you’re running personal errands. Your Flexdrive rental has built-in mileage tracking. It’s connected to your Lyft app so you can see how many personal miles you’ve driven and how many personal miles you have left in your pricing plan.

A quick note: The example shown here may not match the pricing and personal miles plans in your region.

If you’re on a Flexdrive limited personal miles plan:

When you’re offline, you can swipe up to see how many personal miles you’ve driven, and how many are included in your current pricing plan. 

In this example, you’ve driven 45 personal miles from the 200 Personal Miles plan. If it’s your first week renting from Express Drive, the personal miles in your plan will be prorated by the number of days you rented during your first week.
