  • Property Damage Coverage, which could cover damage to non-bus assets
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP), which could cover injuries to bus passengers
  • Medical Payments Coverage, which could cover injured bus passengers’ medical costs
  • Bodily Injury Coverage, which could cover injuries to persons not on a bus
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage, which could cover accidents with uninsured drivers
