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.

 

FAQ

How do I get from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport to the city of New Orleans?

JP Transit’s E1 Veterans-Airport route connects the airport in Jefferson Parish to the city of New Orleans.


How many suitcases can I take on the bus and is there a luggage compartment on the bus?

We have a 2 bag limit and no luggage compartment. We ask that you board, pay your fare, then walk with your suitcase to the back of the bus, and place the bag under the seat, or under your legs.


Can I park at Wilty Terminal in Gretna?

The parking at Wilty Terminal is free 24/7.


Do buses stop only at the stops listed on the schedules?

No, buses generally stop every 2 blocks within Jefferson Parish. Look for the JP Transit bus stop signs for designated locations.


What about bus stops in New Orleans? Do JP Transit buses that enter New Orleans stop every 2 blocks also?

JP Transit buses from the Westbank make a loop in downtown New Orleans. These buses stop about every 2 blocks. Look for “mini” JP Transit bus stop signs for locations.

The E2 Airline bus, which travels along Tulane Avenue to Loyola Avenue picks up and drops off passengers at all regular bus stops along its route on Tulane Avenue.

The E3 Kenner Local bus, which travels along Claiborne Avenue to Carrollton, will let passengers off along Claiborne Avenue when traveling inbound but will not pick up any passengers. When it is traveling back toward Jefferson Parish, riders traveling into Jefferson Parish can board at any regular bus stop on Claiborne Avenue.


Are all JP Transit buses equipped with lifts for wheelchair access?

Yes, all JP Transit buses are lift-equipped buses that comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These buses also use the Talking Bus system to announce major bus stops and transfer points along each route.


Do the buses operate on holidays?

Buses follow their Saturday schedule on holidays. Buses that do not provide Saturday service do not provide service on holidays. Please check the individual route schedules for details.
