Temporary Modification of Taxi Insurance Requirements -12-Month Extension 5.6.2021

Effective Date
Thursday, May 6, 2021 - 9:00am


To: San Francisco Taxi Medallion Holders and Color Schemes

In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the San Francisco Taxi industry, I have approved an additional temporary extension of the modified insurance requirements
for San Francisco taxis.
These changes are in effect for an additional twelve-month period, commencing on July 1, 2021 and ending on June 30, 2022, and will be reviewed at the end of the period for possible continuation or termination. SFMTA reserves the right to modify the insurance requirements at any point during the 2021-2022 fiscal year 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 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 both:
Sarah Hellman, Regulated Mobility Permit Manager Sarah.Hellman2@sfmta.com.
Danny Yeung, Principal Regulated Mobility Analyst Danny.Yeung@sfmta.com.
