Ridership continues to climb on the SCCTD Flyer. The September ridership report is demonstrating an increase of more than 150 percent per day over prior year for the Belleville Mobility on Demand zone. The East Zone which incorporates East St Louis, Brooklyn, Fairmont City and parts of Cahokia Heights and Washington Park is averaging more than a 40 percent increase per day for the month of September.
The SCCTD Flyer is a flexible, on-demand, shared-ride service offered at a fraction of the cost of other popular ride-hailing services. It provides access to and from six area Metro Transit centers, helping to eliminate the need to walk – sometimes long distances – to gain access to public transportation. The SCCTD Flyer can also be utilized in parts of Belleville to get directly to other destinations – including homes, workplaces, schools, healthcare facilities, shopping establishments and entertainment venues.
A ride can be scheduled by calling (618) 800-6884 or using the TransLoc app, which provides an estimated pick-up time, real-time ride tracking and an alert in advance of arrival.
Service times vary depending on the service zone. The cost is $1 per one-way trip to or from Metro Transit Centers. Trips to other destinations within Belleville’s Mobility-on-Demand (MOD) Zone are $3 per one-way trip. Those with a Senior Pass or Benefit Access Pass (BAP) can go anywhere within the available service areas for $1 per one-way trip.
Fare can be purchased through the TransLoc app, at Ticket Vending Machines at Metro Transit Centers in Illinois or the Gateway Market (2511 State Street, 62205) or Neighbors Marketplace (1001 N. 15t Street, 62205). No cash fares are accepted.
