  • Missouri Independent Taxi Licenses and Permits

    Missouri's many rivers -- especially the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers -- cut through its vast, fertile plains. At their many points of confluence, settlers founded numerous counties and homesteads. Although they never intended it, their work has led to bureaucratic chaos as cities such as Kansas City, lie over multiple counties -- creating a licensing and permitting debacle. Business owners in different parts of the same city can easily need completely different sets of local licenses -- making it more difficult to wade through the regulation than to ford the state's great rivers.

    In Missouri, taxis are among the most highly regulated local businesses. Cities not only license drivers, vehicles and taxi companies, but often control the market by create commoditized medallians or local franchises that restrict the entry of new taxi companies into their cities. Accordingly, anyone involved in the taxi business can expect some serious paperwork, fees and licensing processes.
