What can I do?

I was on my way to work and a transit bus ran a red light and hit me. He fled the scene. How do I avoid getting my insurance to pay?

For future reference most public transit buses have a ID number on the back of the bus. Get this next before he drives off then they call find which operator was actually driving the bus at that time. But call the police they might be able to help you.

Call the police, if there were any cameras nearby then the police will look at them and will contact your insurance company to tell them what happened.

Im trying to figure out what company it was to call them. It happened so fast I didnt catch the name of the company on the side.

Call the police, get a record of the incident. Do NOT move your vehicle until the police are done - it reduces confusion. The city transit authority will have record of which bus has that route, and which driver. Call your insurance and report the incident. The police will record that the driver fled the scene, and your insurance will advise you on what to do next.

I did thanks! They are trying to locate the company of the driver and then go from there. He fled the scene before I even got out of my car.

OK good. It would've been a lot harder to report an accident later (you'd be surprised how many people do that for smaller accidents.) Good luck!
