As a reminder, applications for the new taxi permit will be accepted starting Monday at the MWR warehouse (2347 Louisiana Ave.).
The new permits will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020.
Applicants will be charged an annual fee of $25 per vehicle for the permit. Payments can be made by check, payable to IMWRF, or credit card at the time of acceptance of their application.
Just as before, the new permit is solely for the vehicle. All drivers must be vetted through regular post entrance security procedures, with FMWR as the sponsor.
Drivers must possess a valid license from the state of Missouri to operate as a motor carrier for the classes and types of services authorized on Fort Leonard Wood, such as Uber and Lyft vehicles wanting to operate on the installation. In addition, they must be able to present proof of insurance and registration as well as the license plate and cab number of any vehicles to be permitted.
For more information on the new permits, call 573.596.0118.
