March 22 Fix the Design Disaster Rally: The new ferry terminal proposal is a “Design Disaster” for riders. It eliminates both the footbridge over the freight railroad tracks and cover from the heavy rain and hot sun that define New Orleans for much of the year. That’s a serious step backward for transit riders and our city. Please join us and other riders on Wednesday March 22 from 4:00 to 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Canal and Convention Center Boulevard to rally for a better design!
WHO: Ride New Orleans, Friends of the Ferry, Algiers residents and community organizations, and transit riders.
WHAT: A public rally at the foot of Canal Street to highlight how the new ferry terminal will be a big loss for transit riders if built as currently designed. Advocates will ask city officials to commit to improving the design by adding a pedestrian walkway over the freight railroad tracks and shelter from the elements for riders as they approach and leave the ferry.
WHERE: Intersection of Canal and Convention Center Boulevard at the base of the ferry terminal walkway
WHEN: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
