Skylands Gives N.J. Mass Transit Riders a Car Insurance Break

November 29, 2006

New Jersey Skylands Insurance Companies has unveiled a promotion that highlights what it says is a first-of-a-kind discount for New Jersey drivers who regularly commute to work via mass transit — a rate discount of up to 10 percent.

“It’s no secret that New Jersey drivers have paid some of the highest car insurance premiums in the nation over the last few years,” said Joe Armeni, president, New Jersey Skylands Insurance Companies. “But that has changed dramatically thanks to an ever growing competitive landscape and the hard work of — and cooperation between — insurers, policymakers and elected officials.”

Armeni said the mass transit discount is just one example of how New Jersey Skylands is trying to set itself apart from its competitors.

To raise awareness for the mass transit commuter discount program, the company has kicked off a major promotion campaign in cooperation with NJ TRANSIT.

“We are pleased to partner with New Jersey Skylands Insurance on this forward-thinking program,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director George D. Warrington. “This discount provides one more reason for New Jersey residents to make transit a part of their daily commute.”

New Jersey Skylands Insurance Association (NJSIA) is a reciprocal exchange that is owned by its policyholders. NJSIA is the parent of New Jersey Skylands Insurance Company (NJSIC). Both organizations are managed by New Jersey Skylands Management, LLC (NJSM), an attorney-in-fact and a wholly owned subsidiary of OneBeacon Insurance Group. Learn more at
