Transit Accessibility

We believe that transit should be accessible to everyone, which is why we offer a wide range of services to make riding easier.

The RTA is an essential part of New Orleans, and making our transportation system accessible to everyone is a key part of our commitment to the people of our city. In order to make it easy for persons with disabilities to get where they need to go, our system includes:

  • Standard buses and streetcars equipped with devices for disabled riders
  • Pedestrian-friendly ferry entrances at docks for riders disabled riders
  • Paratransit service for eligible riders

RTA has developed a Reasonable Modification Policy. This Policy provides for reasonable modifications/accommodations to its policies, practices and services to ensure accessibility for riders and will make reasonable modifications and/or accommodations upon request of a rider with a disability.
