Insurance Requirements for Ground Transportation

Vendors providing hired ground transportation for the Villanova University community are required to provide the Insurance and Risk Management Department with their US DOT Numbers. The Insurance and Risk Management Department will then check the Transportation Vendor’s U.S. Department of Transportation safety rating and related safety metrics to determine if the Transportation Vendor meets Villanova’s safety criteria.

Transportation Vendors are required to carry the below insurance and provide evidence via a certificate of insurance.
