Ride New Orleans announced the launch of our Action Committee, and to date, more than 50 community members have joined.  It’s not too late to sign up to join our kick-off meeting!

Our Action Committee is comprised of transit riders and community partners working together on grassroots advocacy campaigns in order to improve transportation services.  We are in the early stages of forming this working group and you are invited to participate as much, or as little, as you would like and in any capacity that you are comfortable with.  Needless to say, you will be instrumental in shaping the actions that will affect the future of public transportation in New Orleans.

Our first Action Committee meeting will take place on Saturday, March 21st from 10 AM to noon at Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center, 2200 Lafitte Avenue

To sign up for the Action Committee, email matt@rideneworleans.org or call 504-249-8419.
