Survey of Transportation Network Company Insurance Coverage
Survey of California Transportation Network Company (TNC) Insurance Experience - Due July 1, 2017
Assembly Bill 2293 (Bonilla 2014) required the California Department of Insurance (CDI) and the California Public Utilities Commission to "collaborate on a study of transportation network company insurance to assess whether coverage requirements are appropriate to the risk of transportation network company services in order to promote data-driven decisions on insurance requirements, and shall report the findings of this study to the Legislature no later than December 31, 2017."
In order to meet this Legislative requirement, CDI is issuing this survey or data call to all personal and commercial auto insurers. Insurers that did not offer insurance to Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) or participating drivers will be able to simply check off the appropriate box on the Signature Page, sign, and email us a scanned copy. They are exempt from the remainder of the survey. Personal or commercial auto insurers that did write insurance for TNCs or participating drivers are required to submit the whole survey.
