Support for the Personal Conveyance mode must be enabled in your account. It is already supported for US rule sets and will be supported for Canadian rule sets in early 2021.
Personal Conveyance is a mode that allows you to use a vehicle for authorized personal use without the driving time counting towards your HOS limits. When you turn on Personal Conveyance mode, your HOS status is recorded as Off Duty although your vehicle is moving. Your location is recorded with reduced accuracy and you are unable to sign out of WorkPlan while you are in the Personal Conveyance mode. When you commence your work shift, you must turn the Personal Conveyance mode off.
If you turn your ignition on or off while you are in Personal Conveyance mode and you want to remain in this mode, make sure that you accept the pop-up message that is displayed. The message asks whether you want to continue using Personal Conveyance mode. If you do not accept the pop-up message, you automatically leave Personal Conveyance mode and start using Driving mode.
In Canada, you must not drive a cumulative daily distance greater than 75km in Personal Conveyance mode. If you exceed a cumulative distance of 75km while in Personal Conveyance mode, your status is automatically changed to Driving and you are no longer in Personal Conveyance mode. Your driving time then counts towards your permitted driving allowance. The daily Personal Conveyance allowance resets at midnight, not at the start or end of the driver’s shift.
Entering Personal Conveyance Mode
To enter the Personal Conveyance mode:
- Turn your vehicle off, if you have been driving as part of your work shift.
- Perform any remaining work tasks, if applicable, making sure that your status is On Duty on the HOS Status screen.
- When you are ready to enter the Personal Conveyance mode, change your HOS status to Off Duty on the HOS Status screen.
- Tap Actions at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap Personal Conveyance.
- Tap Yes to enter the Personal Conveyance mode. While you are in the Personal Conveyance mode, you are unable to change your HOS status or sign out. Normal HOS functionality is disabled and your location is recorded with reduced accuracy.
If you are driving in Canada, the remaining distance that you are allowed to drive in Personal Conveyance mode is shown on the Personal Conveyance screen. If you exceed the permitted distance of 75km, you will be automatically switched to Driving.
Leaving Personal Conveyance Mode
To leave the Personal Conveyance mode and return to normal HOS functionality tap End on the screen that is displayed while you are in the Personal Conveyance mode.
When you change your HOS status, you can select an event type of Personal Conveyance. Selecting this option does not enter you into the Personal Conveyance mode described on this page. To enter the Personal Conveyance mode, select Personal Conveyance from the Actions menu.
