Taking a taxi in a big city is a fairly easy task, though not always a pleasant experience. In smaller cities and towns, taxi services are not as prevalent for the convenience of a quick ride. A great solution and alternative to taxi services is the recent development of RideShare.
However, the RideShare business model was developed with little regard for current laws or insurance gaps. Uber has operated under the assumption that they could get exemptions from taxi regulations or get the laws changed. On the practical side for the every-day driver, there are some challenges, too. Coverage from your insurer is not normally included in your policy. If you are driving for a RideShare company, please contact us so we can discuss your policy’s limitations and options.
