RideScout adds shuttles to downtown route
Tuesday, July 21, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
Transportation app RideScout is expanding its downtown circulator service, which offers free rides along a fixed route from the Convention Center to Republic Square Park, running west on Eighth and Sixth streets and returning east on Fifth and Second streets. Although the route is fixed, the stops are not. Riders can flag down RideShare vehicles anywhere along the way. Currently in its pilot phase, the service initially provided rides in open-air electric cabs – now, through a partnership with R&R Limo and Bus, it will be adding air-conditioned 20-passenger shuttles in order to accommodate more riders. The shuttle runs every 10 to 15 minutes on weekdays during the three busiest times of day: 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 4 to 6 p.m.
