INSURANCE AND HOW IT WORKS WITH CAR

Updated 04/13/20

As a ride-sharing driver, you are required to maintain auto insurance that meets your state's minimum financial responsibilities. This requirement can be fulfilled with either personal or commercial auto insurance.

Once the Call A Ride app is on, our contingent liability coverage is designed to provide coverage when the app is in driver mode before you’ve received a ride request in the event your personal insurance does not respond. The policy limits of insurance of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage liability coverage per accident. Drivers who have a delivery or limo business must maintain all compulsory licensing and commercial insurance requirements in accordance with state or local law. CAR's insurance provider is Fair American Select Insurance Company.

  • When your Call A Ride app is on and the driver is available, but you don't have an accepted rider request, Call A Ride provides contingent liability coverage to protect you if your personal insurance doesn't.

NOTE: This policy may be modified to comply with specific city and/or state insurance requirements.

  • Once you have accepted a rider request, you will be covered by Call A Ride's third-party liability insurance policy of $1 million coverage for bodily injury and property damage.
  • Once the ride has started, you are covered by Call A Ride's third-party liability insurance policy of $1 million coverage for bodily injury and property damage.
  • There is a $2500 deductible for any insurance claim.

Note: If you already carry commercial insurance or personal coverage that provides specific coverage for ridesharing, Call A Ride's policy will continue to excess to your insurance coverage. Having commercial (or ridesharing coverage where available) can add value and possibly save drivers money in certain situations, which is something to consider while driving.
