Nearly Every State Requires Insurance Protections for TNC Drivers, Passengers and the Public
PCI Successfully Changes the Legislative Landscape across the Nation

On June 15, 2017, Alaska Governor Bill Walker signed SB 132 which will close the insurance coverage gaps associated with transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft. The only other active bill at this time is SB 7126 in Connecticut and it has been sent to the governor to be signed into law. Significant progress continues to be made on the issue as Alaska, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Wyoming enacted TNC legislation this year. Currently 47 states and the District of Columbia have enacted TNC legislation addressing insurance.

Across the country, PCI has supported establishing rules that provide clarity regarding what insurance coverage is being provided, when it’s being provided and by whom, as well as appropriate disclosures for drivers and passengers. PCI also supports innovation that brings new products into the marketplace.

Legislative momentum for these laws was gained in the spring of 2015, when the insurance industry and the TNCs mutually supported model legislation establishing TNC insurance requirements from the time the ridesharing app is turned on until it is turned off. The TNC laws now on the books put an end to consumer confusion regarding insurance coverage, while also allowing for continued marketplace innovation. As new transportation ideas evolve to meet consumers’ needs and demands, insurers are developing new products to cover those ideas and provide peace of mind.
