What are TNC’s?
A TNC is defined as an organization whether a corporation, partnership,
sole proprietor, or other form, operating in California that provides
prearranged transportation services for compensation using an onlineenabled application (app) or platform to connects passengers with
drivers using their personal vehicles. TNCs are not “ridesharing”
services. They are for-profit businesses.

Assembly Bill 2293 - Susan Bonilla

When a driver has accepted a request or picked up a passenger, AB 2293
would require $1 million worth of insurance.

When the driver is cruising with app on looking for a fare, AB 2293 requires
$200,000 worth of insurance.

If the Governor signs the bill into law, the requirement would be effective July
1, 2015, and the CPUC and Dept. of Insurance would need to assess whether
the coverage requirements are appropriate and report back to the legislature
by Dec 31, 2017.
