Ride New Orleans’ CBD Transfer Station Campaign, “Giving Transit Riders The Seat They Deserve”, will send a message to decision-makers in New Orleans: invest in a true CBD transfer station that provides basic comforts to current riders and encourages new ridership from tourists and residents who typically drive. More than 40% of RTA riders wait at the transfer point for 45 minutes or longer, and there are no public restrooms, route maps, shelter, and very few places to sit.
Please join us at our next Awesome Hours event – Saturday, August 17th (3pm-5pm) at Tru Rootz Natural Hair Salon, 3351 Kabel Drive, Suite D. We’ll present a $1000 check to this month’s winner, Ride New Orleans, and they’ll talk about their AWESOME campaign! After the check giveaway, trustees will be available to talk one-on-one with YOU about your project ideas and help you to apply.
Remember, we make $1000 grants every month. Proposals are now being accepted for the September grant cycle. So if you applied, but didn’t receive a grant during this cycle, we encourage you to re-apply!
