What Is School Bus Insurance?

School bus insurance is a legal contract between the insurer and the policyholder that provides coverage for any unforeseen incident resulting in loss or damage to the students/staff travelling inside it. The school buses make countless trips every academic year, transporting the students securely, efficiently and economically. Therefore, if you own a bus, which is commercially used for the transportation of the students/staff from the various neighbourhoods, then buying school bus insurance is necessary and a smart choice.

School Bus Insurance: Importance

School bus insurance is important as primarily it provides adequate cover against any unforeseen event. Besides, having school bus insurance ensures the safety of the drivers and passengers on the bus.

Generally, a school bus is owned, either leased or contracted to be operated by a school as it continuously is in the functioning of transporting the students from the school or any of the school-related activities. However, it does not include a transit or charter bus.

To operate a school bus, you will need a hired driver. Therefore, extensive liability coverage is important for the drivers, the passengers and the school district.

Moreover, a school bus is different from many other vehicles because of the following stated reasons:

  • The buses fall under the category of passenger carrying vehicle rather than a vehicle used personally.
  • Besides, the seating capacity in a school bus does not only need a standard driving license but also require a commercial driver’s permit.

Any bus, which has a seating capacity of more than 14 people, is considered a commercial passenger-carrying vehicle. Therefore, in case the bus is not in use for the transportation of students and is used otherwise, the owner needs to have commercial vehicle insurance.
