After more than two years it’s official – the New Orleans region will have a new transit system! On March 23, the RTA board approved the New Links regional network redesign proposal!
We would like to extend our thank yous to RTA leadership for this bold decision. If you would also like to show your gratitude, please sign our thank you petition!
Dear RTA Board of Commissioners:
We would like to extend our thanks for your bold decision to move forward with redesigning our region’s transit system.
Change is never easy, but the New Links proposal will mean a more equitable and functional transit system for everyone. An implemented New Links means:
- A doubling of the percentage of riders of color and lower income households that have access to fast and frequent transit
- A doubling of the number of transit lines that come every 20 minutes or less, seven days a week
- True regional connections between major jobs centers and between the parishes on the West Bank
- Increased service and frequency for underserved communities like New Orleans East and Algiers
We look forward to continuing to partner with you during the implementation process.
