Reimagine 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).
Over the next few months, the New Links team will study each bus, streetcar and ferry line in the New Orleans region while working with the public to understand what riders and stakeholders need from public transportation. At the end of the project, the New Links team will propose a redesigned transit network with specific changes designed to make public transportation work better for riders.

As part of the New Links project, the RTA and JeT are doing a survey on bus, streetcar and ferry riders in the greater New Orleans area from March to April 2019 to help with transportation planning. During this time, interviewers will ask some riders questions about their trips.
