Understanding Texas Insurance Requirements – Liability Limits

Texas State law requires all passenger transportation businesses to maintain commercial auto insurance in the following amounts.

Under 16 passengers

16-26 passenger vehicle (including driver)

27 and more passenger vehicle (including driver)

$30,000/$60,000 Bodily Injury
$25,000 Property Damage

$500,000 in Combined Single Limit (CSL)

$5 Million in Combined Single Limit (CSL)

CSL is a single dollar limit that applied to any combination of property damage and bodily injury, instead of the split limits that are more common in personal auto insurance. Transportation Insurance is most commonly a combined limit liability coverage amount.

The above requirements are for intrastate operations. Intrastate is for transportation businesses that don’t cross state lines, meaning your business doesn’t leave Texas. If you plan on taking passengers over state lines than you are an interstate business and are governed by the FMCSA.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Insurance Requirements

15 or less passenger vehicle (including driver)

16-26 passenger vehicle (including driver)

$1,500,000 in Combined Single Limit (CSL)

$500,000 in Combined Single Limit (CSL)

Average Cost of Party Bus Insurance

Costs vary depending on area, vehicle, drivers and years of prior insurance. New venture can expect to pay between $6,000 to $8,000 per year. Business with three (3) or more years of prior insurance and no losses can expect to pay 22% less than new venture operations.
