Buses and Rideshare
Use the Bus or Streetcar
Commuting to work or around town, why not use a bus or the streetcar? It lowers your carbon emissions as well as leaving you free to read on your way to work.
Metro New Orleans GreenRide is completely free and helps connect commuters with carpool matches in the New Orleans Metropolitan Region.
Better yet…BIKE it around town! Some places, like the French Quarter or Marigny, biking makes the most sense as car parking in those places can be next to impossible. There are many benefits to bike riding, it produces zero carbon emissions, increases fitness, helps with weight loss, reduces stress, helps lower blood pressure, helps balance your mood, and increases life expectancy. When biking, be sure to wear a helmut all the time and use a light if you are biking at night.
