Ride New Orleans released the results of our 2019 Hotel Worker Transportation survey today.
Over 500 hotel workers from 32 different hotels in the French Quarter and New Orleans CBD took the survey between November 2018 and February 2019. 48 percent of the survey takers said they regularly commute to work via public transit – demonstrating how important effective transit service is for the industry.
Unfortunately, the survey reveals that transportation is a real problem for transit-reliant hotel workers.
Over 60 percent of transit riders were late to work at least once within the previous month because of unreliable and more than 1/3 were late three times or more.
But, on the bright side, there are also common-sense solutions transit-reliant hotel workers say would help a lot. Our survey offers planners for the New Links regional transit network redesign guidance on what to prioritize as we continue the reimagining of New Orleans region transit.
