Richfield, Ohio, April 4, 2012 – National Interstate Insurance Company announced that effective April 2, 2012 it has expanded its Community & Medical Transportation (CMT) insurance program to include best-in-class fleet taxi operations. The product will be offered exclusively through National Interstate’s network of qualified independent retail brokers.

Originally launched in 2003, the CMT program focuses on providing specialized insurance solutions to local community passenger transportation companies including paratransit, non-emergency medical transportation, as well as fixed-route and demand-response public transit providers. The CMT product is underwritten and serviced through National Interstate’s Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania office by an in-house staff with nearly 50 years of collective CMT experience.

“Best-in-class fleet taxi operations are a natural fit for our CMT program, and we are excited to expand into this highly-specialized market,” said Jim Parks, Vice President of National Interstate. “This expansion also brings our brokers an excellent opportunity to grow their business with us. Our CMT staff is dedicated to providing innovative insurance products and underwriting expertise to all of our customers and brokers. We are committed to the community and medical transportation industry, and look forward to serving the taxi market as a part of our unique customer base.”

National Interstate is also an active member of the Taxicab, Limousine and Paratransit Association (TLPA), and will be attending their Spring Conference being held in New Orleans, LA on May 6-9, 2012, as well as exhibiting at the Annual Convention and Tradeshow in October. For more information, interested taxi cab companies and brokers may contact Matt Andrews, CMT’s General Manager, at, or 800-931-7080.
