  • Estimated property damage equal to or greater than $25,000
  • Collisions involving transit vehicles that require the towing away of a transit vehicle or other non-transit vehicle (regardless of whether an injury occurred or the value of property damage)
  • Theft or robbery
  • An evacuation of a transit facility or vehicle due to potentially unsafe conditions (mechanical or maintenance issues, smoke/fire/fumes, or security threats like suspicious packages, bomb threats, bombing, etc.)
