Forum 4/2: Give Transit the Green Light

March 22, 2018


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!

Many transit advocates and experts say this is exactly what we should be doing right now. So what’s holding us back?

Join us April 2 for a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities in prioritizing transit vehicles on major roads in the city and region.
