Reminder: City to hold final open house for public transit redesign August 22 at Jazz and Heritage Museum

On August 22, New Orleans officials will hold the eighth and final open house for the redesign of the New Links network to improve public transportation in the city and surrounding region.

The meeting will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Museum located at 1205 N. Rampart St.

The public meeting is organized by officials from the Regional Planning Commission (RPC), Regional Transit Authority, and the mayor’s Office of Transportation, some of whom will be in attendance.

New Links is a year-long project to study transit connectivity between Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard parishes. RPC partnered with Jefferson Transit to conduct the study, which received support from New Orleans officials.

“Our job is to help people get to work, schools, health appointments, entertainment and more across the region,” RPC Director Roesel said in a prepared statement. “It’s the reason we’re encouraging the public to participate.”
