New Links Project

Reimagining our Transit Network

New Links is a yearlong project to study and propose a network redesign of public transportation in Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard Parishes. The project is a partnership between the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and Regional Planning Commission (RPC), in collaboration with Jefferson Transit (JeT) and St. Bernard Urban Rapid Transit (SBURT).
