SuperShuttle has suspended operations at LAX and other California sites for being out of compliance with state insurance requirements, it was reported Friday.
“SuperShuttle’s operating permit is currently suspended because they are not in compliance with (California Public Utilities Commission) insurance requirements,” commission spokeswoman Terrie Prosper wrote in an email Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times. “SuperShuttle is working on resolving the issue.”
Mark Lundy at SuperShuttle’s Phoenix office said the company is aware of the suspension and that “the local office is working on it,” The Times reported. There was no word on when reservations would be resumed.
LAX received a call Wednesday saying that a change in insurance carriers may have caused a problem for SuperShuttle to operate as a transportation charter party, said Becca Doten, media director at Los Angeles World Airports, according to The Times.
SuperShuttle also services John Wayne Airport in Orange County, but that facility was not affected.
The suspension comes just ahead of one of the busiest travel periods of the year. Airlines for America, an airline trade group, predicts that 31.6 million people will fly during a 12-day stretch that includes Thanksgiving.
