Week in Review : MAJOR EVENTS, IMAGES AND PEOPLE IN ORANGE COUNTY NEWS : TRANSPORTATION : OCTD Self-Insured

July 13, 1986

Faced with mounting liability insurance costs, the Orange County Transit District has followed the lead of numerous government agencies and cities in "going bare" with only self-insurance coverage.

The decision by directors makes OCTD one of the largest self-insured public transit agencies in the country.

The action is not expected to have a major effect on claims filed against the district, officials said, since OCTD was already self-insured for the first $5 million in losses, and total claims have never reached that amount.
