Information: The Regional Transit Authority gets people moving around New Orleans. Transit services bring hard-working commuters to their jobs, students to their schools, and fun-seekers to entertainment, shopping areas, and restaurants. RTA provides mobility to residents of the city as well as to large numbers of tourists, taking them to and from their hotels to historical neighborhoods and countless attractions. In fact, many visitors (and locals) ride the RTA’s iconic streetcars simply for the fun of it. In this way, the RTA is a destination in itself. Streetcars and buses are both a symbol of the city and an essential part of it. In extreme circumstance, US Probation may provide bus tokens to those in need. Talk to your officer for more information.
