ST. LOUIS - A car service that dispatches its vehicles using a smartphone app will start operating in St. Louis as soon as next week.

On Tuesday, the Metropolitan Taxicab Commission approved Carmel Car and Limousine's request to begin selling its dispatch application in the city.

Under the system, customers can request a car using the company's app from any location and then track the car's location.

Carmel is already using the app in seven other cities.
