Transportation services need permits

Daily staff report

VAIL — Transportation providers doing business in Vail are required to purchase annual permits to provide passenger service within the town. The permit system was established in 2012 to help regulate the town’s management of shuttles, limousines, taxis, buses and other transportation services, including Uber and Lyft.

Permits are issued on an annual basis and are valid Nov. 1 through Oct. 31. Permit-holders are allowed access to designated staging areas for passenger pick-up and drop-off areas in Vail Village and Lionshead.

Permits are $50 per vehicle per transportation year for in-county commercial operators and $25 per vehicle per transportation year for out-of-county commercial operators. Applications are available online at or from the Vail Police Department Records Counter, which is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, 75 S. Frontage Road.

For questions about purchasing permits, call Vail Police Records at 970-479-2210.
