ST. LOUIS — A downtown St. Louis business association is piloting an on-demand transit service to help alleviate first-mile, last-mile problems and bolster the local economy, according to a Next City report.

The association, Downtown STL Inc., has funded a four-month $135,000 pilot project to serve downtown transit riders and drivers with free, on-demand shuttle rides. The service, which will launch March 1, will use a fleet of three electric cabs, the report said.

According to Downtown STL CEO Missy Kelley, the goal is making it easier for people to navigate the neighborhood, thereby making it more attractive for visitors, workers and residents, Next City reported.
