The St. Louis Taxicab Commission is considering changing rules that would allow Uber black service to enter the taxicab market. The ride-sharing app would allow customers to order a town car that would be driven by a professional driver. UberX, which allows non-professional drivers to advertise rides, and Lyft, another ride-sharing app, would not be allowed to operate in the city.
