I. SUMMARY

On December 7, 2021, the City Council approved the purchase of transit liability insurance from the California Transit Systems Joint Powers Authority (CalTIP). This covers the City's liabilities associated with operating the Carson Circuit fixed-route bus service, as well as City's contingent liabilities associated with fixed-route bus service provided by Long Beach Transit.
