Part 1: Volunteer Driver Insurance
Volunteer transportation programs provide an essential, often life-enhancing services for older adults and younger people with disabilities in communities across the U.S. However, potential volunteer drivers are sometimes deterred by a concern that their automobile insurance will be cancelled if they provide volunteer rides or not cover them should they be involved in an accident when providing a ride. A recent complication is that some insurance agents make no distinction between volunteer drivers and paid drivers who work with Uber or Lyft, resulting in confusion and the threat of increased rates for volunteer drivers. This webinar will feature a presentation on the new AARP report, Volunteer Driver Insurance in the Age of Ridehailing.

Part 2: Volunteer Driver Program Liability and Protection
This webinar will focus attention on volunteer transportation program protection from liability through insurance and program policies. While liability insurance is critical to protect the program and supplement volunteer drivers’ personal auto insurance, program policies governing volunteer selection, training and procedures are equally important. The session will include a discussion of specific processes and training implemented by volunteer driver programs across the country to reduce risk.
