The city will launch an on-demand minivan service for some suburban areas as of August.

City officials have unveiled a new on-demand minivan service for outlying regions. The wheelchair-accessible, eight-passenger vehicles, called Flexibuses, are expected to be deployed as of August.

The service would operate much like taxis, where requests for a ride would be made in advance with a smartphone app. The city promises a maximum 15-minute wait for the ride.
