Mardi Gras 2020 Social Media Toolkit

The RTA Social Media Toolkit was created for your agency to share in communicating key messages for getting around safe-n-easy during Mardi Gras 2020. We’ve developed creative assets and social media posts that you can drop right into on your social media platforms so that we can all message with one voice to the community about traveling safely and staying informed during the season. 

Follow Us

RTA utilizes Facebook, Twitter (NewOrleansRTA & RTAforward), and Instagram to keep riders updated. 


We’re using the primary hashtag below throughout the Mardi Gras Season to alert riders of parade detours.

Creative Assets

Use the creative assets to share information. See our sample posts below and use them along with the creative. Assets mainly include graphic art, text art, and photographs.
