Forum 4/2: Give Transit the Green Light

Do you want faster and more frequent bus and streetcar service in New Orleans?

One of the easiest solutions is simply to give our buses and streetcars priority access on key roads – to give transit the green light!

Join us for an educational forum on strategies to make transit service faster, more frequent, and reliable. We’ll highlight priority features like transit dedicated lanes, traffic signal prioritization, bus queue jumps, and other infrastructure improvements. And our panel of local policy leaders will discuss the challenges and opportunities that come with each of these strategies.


April 2nd at the Jung Hotel, 1500 Canal St., from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Light snacks will be provided.
