Nothing dampens a traveler's getaway glow faster than having to solicit friends and neighbors for a rush-hour ride to the airport. That’s why Skypark Airport Parking set up just a three-block jaunt away from Lambert–St. Louis International Airport, providing passengers with a safe, convenient place to park their self-driven taxis. After kissing cars goodbye inside the fully lit and fenced-in facility, guests can grab their luggage and hop aboard a shuttle that will transport them to their terminal. Parking patrons can even request optional upkeep such as car washes and oil changes to ensure vehicles are shiny and ready to roll when they return. The facility is open 24 hours a day to accommodate redeye flights, which often stop to peek inside and coo at the sleeping cars.

An affiliate of Enterprise, WeCar mobilizes its members with short-term rentals of fuel-efficient, hybrid, and plug-in vehicles. For a minimum of one hour, drivers borrow cars for errands or business meetings at an hourly or daily rate that includes gas, basic insurance coverage, and up to 200 miles per use. Upon making a reservation—which can be done 24 hours a day—members retrieve a vehicle from its designated location. Members are expected to keep the car in respectful condition, keeping pets in carriers, not smoking, and using the included gas card to refill tanks once the reach only one-quarter full. Any trips longer than 200 miles incur an additional $0.35 fee per mile, and 24-hour roadside assistance ensures drivers aren't stranded with flat tires, dead batteries, or horns that won't stop honking the Knight Rider theme song. At the end of each trip, the car must be returned on time to its original location.
Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower drive three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Drivers conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.

Their fleet includes a classic stretch limo, a rowdier party bus, and a signature hot pink stretch hummer.

All rides include complimentary soda and water, and the guests of bachelor and bachelorette parties and weddings also receive a bottle of bubbly on the house. The chauffeurs can whisk guests around the town to locations of choice, or offer curated day trips to local wineries.
