JP Transit Public Hearing Postponement

The Jefferson Parish Department of Transit Administration will postpone the June 28th virtual public hearing to discuss the proposed elimination of the E6 Metairie Local route and bus service. Jefferson Parish Transit will announce a date for the rescheduled hearing to be held later this summer.

This hearing will provide an opportunity for the public and organizations to be heard with respect to the E6 Metairie Local service elimination, which Administration has proposed beginning October 1, 2022. Please stay tuned for announcements and registration opportunities on the JP Transit website.

Statement regarding face mask use on public transportation
In light of the court ruling on Monday, April 18, 2022 and effective immediately,  the TSA will not enforce the mask mandate  on public transportation.   Therefore, JP Transit and its operators will  no longer enforce the mask mandate on Buses or Paratransit vehicles.   However,  the CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks on public transit.   We will communicate any updates publicly if and/or when they change.

 

Current Campaign

Security Public Education Campaign

Be aware of your surroundings

Jefferson Parish Transit takes security on our buses, at our terminals, and at our bus stops very seriously. We ask that you do the same. Be aware of your surroundings and report anything suspicious to a uniformed officer, JP Transit employee, or call (504) 818-1077 or 911 from a safe distance. Remember SEC_RITY is not complete without U!

Transit Watch was developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in partnership with the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

The latest campaign from Jefferson Parish Transit Administration (JPTA) is part of a three year campaign to educate the public on how they can help to improve transit security for Jefferson Parish Transit passengers. The purpose of this campaign is to increase public awareness of security issues, to encourage passengers to take an active role in keeping transit safe, and to inform the public of proper evacuation procedures during an emergency event.
