  • Taxi Companies operating any motor vehicle shall secure and maintain commercial automobile liability insurance covering those vehicles, with a combined single limit of not less than $1 million per occurrence for claims arising out of, but not limited to, bodily injury and property damage incurred in the course of operating in the City.
