Luckow said they are insured like a rideshare program and don’t have commercial insurance.
"Legally, car owners are supposed to be insured under their own policy. Our drivers have full coverage insurance and it covers us in whatever vehicle we're in” Luckow said.
Unlike rideshare, customers can’t ride in Casper BuDDies’ car unless there are too many people to fit safely.
