What is the Coalition for Quality Transit?
The Coalition for Quality Transit is a broad-based group from every corner of New Orleans, all working to give New Orleans residents the world-class transit we deserve. The Coalition includes transit riders, supporters, businesses, affordable housing advocates, public health leaders, environmental stewards, and community leaders. We are working together to strengthen New Orleans transit, to reduce congestion and pollution, improve mobility, bolster economic growth, and increase access to opportunity for all New Orleanians.
The Coalition for Quality Transit is fueled by RIDE New Orleans, but the ideas – summarized in the report to be released next Tuesday – are driven by its members.
Working in partnership with the community, as well as city and transit officials, we’ll be showing the broad support for more frequent, reliable service, better amenities, safer conditions, and many other important aspects of world-class transit.
Every additional resident who attends next Tuesday helps us better show this broad support.
- Sweet snacks, goodies and snoballs
- A celebration of the new transit service improvements
- Decorate a bus with your ideas for quality transit and a #sweetride
- Public officials and riders coming together to share their visions for quality transit
In addition, you’ll get to meet our new Executive Director, Alex Posorke. I’ll be telling you more about Alex later this week, but please make some time on your calendar to come out and see him next Tuesday.
Thanks for all of your support,
President, Board of Directors
