(Fort Leonard Wood)–Today is the first day for taxi companies or independent drivers to apply for a taxi permit for 2020 on Fort Leonard Wood. The new, non-exclusive permits will open the post to service from a wide variety of carriers, including multi-national ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft, as well as individuals.
