Effective Date

To: San Francisco Taxi Medallion Holders and Color Schemes

In response to the still continuing impacts of the COVID-19 virus on the San Francisco Taxi industry, I have approved the following temporary extension changes of the insurance requirements for San Francisco taxis.

These changes are in effect for an additional twelve-month period, commencing on July 1, 2023 and ending on June 30, 2024. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) reserves the right to modify the insurance requirements at any point during this period with a
30 days’ notice.


  1. Lower the Insurance Required to $100,000/$300,000/$100,000 (per person/ per accident/ maximum for property damage).
  2. The coverage for Paratransit must remain at a minimum per collision of $1,000,000 while a passenger in an authorized paratransit program is transported. Included in this coverage must be any service animals & assistants. This coverage also applies to any general public wheelchair trips reported as transported via any approved SF ramp taxi.

Insurance policies must still include the Paratransit Broker and the City as additional insureds. Policies must also acknowledge the contractual obligation of the insured to defend, hold harmless, and indemnify the Broker and the City. All other insurance requirements remain in effect, including Insurance Ratings of your carrier.

Approval Process
Before lowering your insurance coverage amount, your policy must be approved. To get it approved, you must submit your proof of insurance by email to:
