The Downtown Community Improvement District (CID), a 501(c)6 organization as designated by the Internal Revenue Service, is a 180-square block area located in the center of Downtown, St. Louis. The District was established in January 2000 by property owners who were committed to providing a cleaner, safer, and more attractive environment that would protect existing assets, attract new investment, and create a more vibrant business, residential, entertainment and hospitality community in the core of Downtown St. Louis.
The escort service previously offered by the Downtown Guides is available through contracted security patrol officers, but with slightly amended hours. The escort service will generally be available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and again from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The escort phone number is the same; please continue to call 314-280-4817 to schedule an escort. As always please give at least 15 minutes notice to avoid a lengthy wait time.
