HERE'S HOW YOU CAN CHECK ANY COMPANY'S CURRENT
LICENSE & INSURANCE STATUS BEFORE YOU BOOK WITH THEM!
All legitimate limousine, charter bus and party bus companies in California are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). When a Company is approved the PUC issues each company a special license called a TCP number.
To check if a company is currently licensed and insured simply click on CPUC and enter the company TCP number or legal name. If you don't know the number ... ask them for it.
The green box will appear if they are licensed and insured to be in the public transportation business and it MUST say ACTIVE in Authorities box.
