RTA Board Meeting 4/28, 6PM

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 06:00 PM
RTA Headquarters in New Orleans, LA

Heads up! The RTA Board is moving their regular monthly meeting time from 10am to 6pm to increase public participation and reach those that wouldn't usually be able to attend. Mark your calendars, come out, and speak your mind about improving transit service in New Orleans!

Ride New Orleans will be out in full force - we'll ask the Board to hold the first meeting of the RTA Riders Advisory Committee by no later than July 2015. More than 30 applicants have been waiting over a year to sit on this committee and it's time to get it off the ground. The Riders Advisory Committee is important because it will institutionalize a process for community input to shape the RTA's planning and decision-making. 

Find us as you head into the meeting and we'll give you a sticker to wear to show solidarity for RAC!

Hope to see you Tuesday night 4/28 at 6PM
