NEW ORLEANS — Early birds and night owls will have more bus and streetcar options throughout the city starting Sunday, as the Regional Transit Authority rolls out a nearly $5 million annual expansion of its service, The Advocate reported.

Planners for the transit service are focused on three areas — the Central Business District, Tulane and Loyola universities Uptown and the University of New Orleans on the Lakefront — that are seen as major employment hubs and major destinations, such as for students, the report said.

The expanded service, aimed at providing more service for those headed to those areas from more far-flung areas, such as New Orleans East, represents an increase of about 47,000 hours of routes a year. Bus service will increase by about 11% and weekend bus service by about 28%, according to The Advocate.
