Statewide Insurance Pooling for Public Transit

The objective of this research was to provide state DOTs and their public transportation partners with a guidebook on how to effectively implement a statewide and/or regional pooled transit vehicle insurance policy model. The guidebook will be specific to Federal Transit Administration (FTA) direct recipients and subrecipients of the Formula Grants for Rural Areas program (49 U.S.C. 5311) and Urbanized Area Formula Funding program (49 U.S.C. 5307) who are using rubber tire transit vehicles. The guidebook should address the following, at a minimum: (1) the benefits of overall risk management and loss mitigation improvement strategies; (2) cost efficiencies based on economies of scale on vehicle insurance premiums and how administrative costs may change; and (3) an implementation work plan that includes a responsibilities matrix, timelines, and mitigation strategies to address barriers to implementation.
