Vehicle maintenance tracking, made simple.
Never lose track of your vehicle’s maintenance again. MyRide901 is the one part of your vehicle’s journey that simply makes sense.
Have you ever...
Put your car or motorcycle up for sale, only to realize your past repair and maintenance receipts have been misplaced over the years?
Taken your vehicle in for service and been advised that work needs to be done, but you could have sworn that work was done six months ago?
The reality is, we lead busy lives.
Keeping track of our vehicle’s maintenance doesn’t often make it to the top of the pile: We stuff receipts, invoices and maintenance notes in file folders or the glove box making them difficult to find and determine what work has been done.
MyRide901 solves this problem by organizing your vehicle maintenance details, receipts and costs in one app on your phone so you can instantly plan upcoming maintenance, check repair history, and keep track of costs—all on a portable timeline you can share with anyone.
It should be easy to find, organize, and access your vehicle’s history. So we developed a solution: MyRide901 helps you keep track of your vehicles’ repairs, maintenance and modifications on a timeline that’s accessible anywhere, anytime from one, easy-to-use mobile app.
We believe there shouldn’t be barriers between vehicle owners and the work performed on their vehicles.
“What I needed was one, consolidated place on my phone where I could capture and organize all Elise’s maintenance information—not just the notes and photos; but the receipts from previous maintenance, the ownership history documents, the magazine reviews of my vehicle, and more.”
The idea for MyRide901 came to our founder, Victor W. von Buchstab, after returning from an early morning drive in his aging sportscar, “Elise” in 2020. He was making reminder notes for Elise’s next service, while the details were still fresh; and began thinking about how he would be able to find all the maintenance notes, which were mixed in with all his other notes, when it came time to take Elise in for her next service.
It occurred to him that he was looking at a much larger problem: “What I needed was one, consolidated place on my phone where I could capture and organize all Elise’s maintenance information—not just the notes and photos; but the receipts from previous maintenance, the ownership history documents, the magazine reviews of my vehicle, and more,” he recalls.
In addition, he needed an easy way to share this information—not just with his service technician; but with others, such as potential buyers, when the time came to sell Elise. His current methods, which involved cutting-and-pasting the notes into an email or printing a physical version of the notes and gathering up previous receipts as well as other documentation was disorganized and prone to gaps where information was missing.
Surely, he couldn’t be the only one facing the problems of capturing, managing, and sharing vehicle maintenance information! There must be others out there facing the same challenges. Inspired by the words of another founder, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, “I couldn’t find the sportscar of my dreams, so I built it myself,” Victor set out to build MyRide901.
“901” is an homage to Elise—the 1970 Porsche 911 that was the inspiration behind MyRide901. What better way to pay tribute to Elise than by adding her model designation, “911” to the app’s name? MyRide911 sounded too much like a roadside assistance app so we decided to go with “901”, Porsche’s original model designation when the cars first hit the market in 1964.
