New Links Project

A Regional Redesign:
Your Voice is Moving JP Transit Forward

New Links is a collaborative project led by the planning staff of the Regional Planning Commission (RPC), which is a transportation policy organization made up of elected officials, transportation agencies, and citizen representatives from the eight parishes in the greater New Orleans region. The RPC is responsible for developing policies and plans for federally funded transportation projects in the region.

The New Links project focuses on the services operated by the two largest transit providers in the greater New Orleans region:

  • The Regional Transit Authority (RTA), which operates 40+ bus, streetcar and ferry routes primarily in New Orleans and the City of Kenner, and
  • Jefferson Parish Transit (JP Transit), which operates 11 bus routes in Jefferson Parish.

In early 2018, the RTA board adopted their Strategic Mobility Plan (SMP), a 20-year comprehensive plan for enhancing the agency’s transit service. As part of that plan, the agency committed to implementing a network redesign.

The RPC, which regularly works on planning projects with both the RTA and JP Transit, was approached by the RTA in mid-2018 to lead the planning for a network redesign that could include both agencies as part of a comprehensive effort. At the time, the RPC was managing JP Transit’s strategic planning process, and received positive feedback from JP Transit leadership about the prospect of a regional transit redesign that would involve both agencies. JP Transit’s Strategic Plan, released in 2019, committed the agency to implementing the recommendations of the network redesign along with the RTA. With the blessing of both agencies, the RPC initiated the New Links study in early 2019.

Thank you for your contribution and support of the New Links project.
