FLORIDA—As a public transportation provider your service is essential for all kinds of people. From larger charter operations to municipal transit authorities to limousine services, your customers rely on you to get them around, whether it’s to attend to a special event, get to their job, explore and do some tourism, or a night in town. As a transportation provider, you will be subject to a specific set of liabilities that should be taken seriously.
In Florida, any vehicle with a valid registration must:
Be insured with PIP and PDL insurance.
Have a minimum of $10,000 in PIP AND a minimum of $10,000 in PDL. Vehicles registered as taxis must carry bodily injury liability (BIL) coverage of $125,000 per person, $250,000 per occurrence and $50,000 for (PDL) coverage.
Have continuous coverage even if the vehicle is not being driven or is inoperable. Surrender the license plate/tag BEFORE cancelling your insurance.
Purchase the policy from an insurance carrier licensed to do business in Florida.
Maintain Florida insurance coverage continuously throughout the registration period regardless of the vehicle’s location.
When you own and operate a business in public transportation, there are basic coverages you must consider. These include, but are not limited to:
Liability Insurance—It covers your company in the event one of your vehicles gets into an auto accident where you or one of your drivers is at fault. Liability insurance coverage covers bodily injury and property damage.
Collision Coverage —helps to protect your business when one of your vehicles gets involved in an accident. This coverage will provide protection with property damage and bodily injury. It can also include medical fees and any damage costs that come from the accident.
Medical Payments Coverage— This coverage provides payment for any medical expenses that may arise due to an employee or a passenger traveling in your vehicle, regardless of who is at fault in an accident.
Comprehensive Coverage — This type of coverage can be valuable when you must pay for repairs or replacement costs associated with an accident.
