RLI Transportation to offer paratransit coverage

Posted on August 27, 2008

RLI Transportation will now offer an array of coverage options for paratransit service programs, which will target public transit agencies, not-for-profit corporations and for-profit private companies whose vehicles provide assistance to people with varying degrees of specialized transportation needs.

“We are responding to the growing need for this type of specialized risk; as our population ages, our society’s transportation needs are changing,” said Tim Hathy, RLI’s assistant vice president.

Paratransit coverages will include: commercial auto liability, physical damage, general liability, hired/non-owned and excess up to $5 million in limits. The program is admitted in all states except Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana and Massachusetts and has a minimum fleet vehicle requirement of 25 power units in all states except New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, where 40 or more units are required. All producers must be appointed with RLI Transportation.
