 Important Changes to Your Express Drive Program in Chicago

We know Express Drive is more than a rental — it’s how you pay the bills. Rising costs have made Express Drive a more expensive program for us and our partners to operate at a break-even price. Our hope is that as operating costs go down in the future, we can pass the savings back to you. To continue offering (and improving) Express Drive, we need to make some changes — including an update that will affect your pay, as well as some of your most-requested improvements — starting Nov. 30.

Your weekly rental fee will increase by $10 per week.

  • Current weekly rental fee: $209 per week, plus taxes and fees 

  • New weekly rental fee: $219 per week, plus taxes and fees

Note: This change will go into effect at your next in-person vehicle renewal after Nov. 30.

We’re also making improvements to Express Drive, starting with some of your top requests:

Your insurance deductible will decrease by $1,500.

We hope you never have to use this one, but if you’re ever in an accident in your Express Drive rental, the out-of-pocket amount you’ll owe will be much more affordable.

  • Current deductible: $2,500

  • New deductible: $1,000

Note: This change will go into effect at your next in-person vehicle renewal after Nov. 30.

You’ll be able to get paid instantly with Express Pay.

It’s one of your most-requested improvements to Express Drive, and it’s rolling out to all drivers in the program by Nov. 30. That means you can cash out instantly after you cover your weekly rental fee, any day of the week.

We’ll help you earn 20% more in tips.

We’re improving the tipping experience to help you earn 20% more in tips, and make it  easier for passengers to thank you for all the ways you go above and beyond. Your passengers can set a default tipping percentage, and we’ll automatically apply it when the ride ends — so they’ll never forget to thank you. And, you’ll be able to earn tips from the moment the ride begins.
