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.
