Georgia Bill Requires TNCs To Carry Commercial Insurance

Posted on April 10, 2015
ATLANTA, Ga. — Legislation that requires transportation network companies Uber and Lyft to carry greater levels of insurance is on its way to Gov. Nathan Deal’s desk, who is expected to sign the bill.

The bill requires $1 million insurance coverage for all drivers from the moment the driver accepts a ride request to the time the ride ends.

“It’s a semi-victory,” said Jeff Greene, president of the Greater Atlanta Limousine Association. “It is a building block that we can amend next year. It does create parity (insurance) and we will be ready next year.” Greene is referring to another seperate bill in the works focused on regulating ride sharing services and paying taxes.
