Mobilitas Insurance, a new Glendale commercial insurance company, is partnering with Lyft to provide ride-sharing commercial insurance coverage in 11 states.
“We are excited to partner with Lyft to provide insurance solutions that help protect the rapidly evolving needs of the mobility market,” said Eric Ummel, general manager of Mobilitas Insurance. “Mobilitas understands the risks of the on-demand, sharing economy and is partnering with companies to develop customized insurance products to best protect their business needs.”
Mobilitas is at 5353 W. Bell Road.
According to a Mobilitas spokesman, “Currently, nearly all of our employees are working remotely due to the shelter-in-place orders. However, as our business needs continue to grow, we anticipate adding a number of new Glendale-based positions—from claims and technology to marketing and operations.”
Mobilitas is focused on creating custom-built insurance solutions for businesses and individuals in the sharing and mobility space.
“Lyft is excited to broaden its rideshare insurance partnerships, resulting in a panel of highly trusted auto carriers,” said Curtis Scott, vice president of Risk at Lyft.
“We recognize a tremendous opportunity to innovate in the emerging on-demand and sharing economy to meet the unique needs of this segment, and we believe it represents one of the largest growth opportunities of the future,” said Ummel.
Mobilitas has a financial strength rating of “A” (excellent) from AM Best, the insurance industry’s primary financial rating firm.
