The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has approved temporary fare reductions to encourage ridership as the agency moves to reinstate full transit service after reducing service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beginning July 1, RTA's monthly Jazzy pass will be reduced from $55 to $45. A new Senior Monthly Jazzy Pass for $14 per month and Senior Day Pass for $0.80 will also be available, in addition to a new monthly Youth Jazzy Pass for $18 per month, Youth Day Pass for $1.00, and a $.50 single ride fare. The new monthly and day pass offerings will be accepted on RTA's bus, streetcar, and ferry services giving riders a single purchase option to ride all transit modes.
The newly reduced fares will be available for purchase on the GoMobile app and in person at the RTA’s Canal Street facility. Passes will also be available to purchase at Walgreen’s locations in the region later this summer.
