Company bus drivers provide transportation services for various people between or within cities by picking up and dropping off passengers at stations, bus stops, and other designated spots. They could operate buses for intercity bus companies, local transit systems, or tour bus companies, and often adhere to strict time schedules regardless of the traffic conditions.
Insurance providers classify buses differently from regular vehicles based on two main criteria. First, buses are considered a passenger transportation vehicle, as opposed to a personal use vehicle. Secondly, any bus with seats for more than 14 passengers is considered a commercial vehicle, which means that the driver must have a commercial driver’s license, rather than a standard operator’s license.
As such, buses tend to have more expensive insurance policies than conventional auto insurance options. Brookhurst Insurance Agents can help you access the right insurance cover for your bus operations, at the best price.Read Mike W.'s review of Brookhurst Insurance Services on Yelp
Strict Auto Insurance Requirements for Company Buses
Bus drivers are expected to drive their vehicles safely as they transport any number of passengers between 15 and over 100 Auto insurance for buses typically cover a lot of liability, considering that it is required to protect the driver, passengers, and business/company from liability in the event of a collision.
Since so many people can sustain injuries in a bus-related accident, and the potential cost of an accident can be so much higher, there is a need for increased coverage for liability. The amount of liability coverage required for different buses varies from state to state, which in turn affects the total cost of an insurance policy because it largely depends on the dollar amount of liability coverage required.
