Other Public Meetings

In addition to public board meetings, the RTA periodically conducts other public meetings on topics of interest to the community. Such meetings might be about service changes, ridership feedback, or paratransit services. Unless otherwise noted, these meetings take place in the RTA boardroom, located in the RTA Facility at 2817 Canal Street in New Orleans.

Special Transit Services (STS) Advisory Committee Meeting Schedule

Riders Advisory Committee

Maximum feasible participation of citizens is a priority at the RTA, and as an agency we’re constantly striving to find new and better ways to give our riders, in particular, and the citizenry at large an opportunity to provide input and feedback in the decision-making process. 

After an extensive application process, the RTA has chosen 21 representatives from each zip code in New Orleans to serve on the Riders’ Advisory Committee.

The Riders’ Advisory Committee will:

  • Provide a forum for the users of public transit to have their voices heard.
  • Promote meaningful participation in planning and decision-making.
  • Provide a mechanism for informing the larger base of transit users on changes and improvements in services.
  • Seek input of and provide feedback from transit users on customer service and public confidence.
  • Provide a forum for the agency to meet and exceed Federal Transit Administration requirements for citizen participation and involvement in planning activities.
  • Support improvements in service.
  • Help the agency to build public confidence.

Admission into the Committee is closed at this time. The application to be considered for future membership into the Rider's Advisory Committee is available at our A. Phillip Randolph facility at 2817 Canal Street, or you can click here to download the Rider's Advisory Committee Application. 

Meetings are held monthly in the RTA Board Room at 2817 Canal St. after working hours to encourage participation of Committee members and the community at-large.
