RTA is Moving New Orleans Forward: Strategic Transit Plan Kicks Off The RTA is Moving New Orleans Forward with the launch of our Strategic Transit Plan charting the future of transit over the next 20 years. This process is giving citizens a voice in designing a mobility plan that will meet the needs of generations to come. The RTA is collaborating with the City’s Master Plan process, studying mobility patterns, projected job growth, housing patterns and plans for future retail, employment, university growth, medical centers and more. A strategic planning retreat was held on Friday, November 11th to establish the framework for this federally mandated process. RTA’s outreach includes public forums for passengers, residents and the business community as well as discussions with many stakeholders across the region. Feedback from citizens will be critical to the development of the mobility vision for the city and beyond. The agency will host and participate in additional forums, discussions and workshops in the months to come to develop a vision for mobility over the next 5, 10, and 20 years. This process is scheduled to last approximately 12 months.
