March 2024 RIDE-Along

Join RIDE New Orleans and the Coalition for Quality Transit for the very first RIDE-Along of the year!

Hop on the RTA #9-Broad bus with RIDE on Saturday, March 16th, 10am until 12pm. We are examining the impact of the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) January service cuts through a 'Complete Streets' lens-- Is there signage at the bus stop? Are the sidewalks ADA-accessible? Does the RTA Le Pass app give us the proper information? Is the bus on time? Are there shelters and seats at our stops? We'll be looking for answers to these questions and more!

Call RIDE's Communications Manager, Shirani, with questions (504) 383-5069 or email her at [email protected]Invite your friends and RIDE-Along with us on Saturday!
