    RTA Service Enhancements Begin This Month

    NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) riders this month began experiencing more frequent service in New Orleans East and Algiers, and enjoying extra hours of operation on the Algiers Point-Canal Street Ferry, the RTA has announced.

    "I want to thank the RTA for listening to our residents as well as the leadership of the City of New Orleans. They have implemented these enhanced services, providing improved access and more transportation options for the community, especially in previously under-served areas of Algiers and New Orleans East," said Mayor LaToya Cantrell. "Transportation is one of my top priorities, and when I took office, I created the City’s first Office of Transportation and prioritized RTA. Transportation is infrastructure, and my administration is ensuring that our infrastructure is accessible, equitable, safe and efficient for all. We are looking at this through an equity lens, and appreciate how this expanded service will help those residents most in need."

    The new service enhancements will primarily be helping transit riders who live in New Orleans East, Algiers, and those who ride the Canal Street Ferry. Many of them are late-night hospitality workers who have been asking for more frequent bus service and more hours on the ferry in order to get to and from work much easier.

    The public comment process for these service enhancements officially kicked off during the RTA’s May 28, 2019, board meeting. The first public engagement meeting was held June 5, 2019, at the Riders Advisory Committee (RAC) meeting. During the July 23, RTA Board meeting, board commissioners approved the services presented below.

    Community members have had the opportunity to provide comments during various public meetings, community outreach events and through the RTA website. Ultimately, the four services below were advanced for implementation and went into effect Sunday, Sept. 1.

    New Orleans East and Algiers neighbors/leaders, as well as ferry supporters, had been asking for more service to improve transportation to and from their neighborhoods. On Aug. 21, the Authority held its final public hearing on implementing the service enhancements specified below. A majority of community members were supportive of the enhancements and wanted to see them move forward.

    New Orleans East Service Enhancements

    • 63-New Orleans East Owl: This bus line will provide service every 30 minutes. (Currently, service is provided every 60 minutes.)
    • 64-Lake Forest Express & 65-Read-Crowder Express: Each bus line will provide service every 30...

    Winning for Workers: CLC Election Training 2019

    On Saturday, September 7, members from local unions gathered in a Toronto union hall to attend the Canadian Labour Congress' first (of many!) election campaign trainings in preparation for the 2019 Federal Election. The theme: how to participate in an election campaign that wins for workers.

    CLC election training materials

    The meeting began with greetings from labour leaders:

    John Cartwright, president of the Toronto & York Region Labour Council (TYRLC),  opened the meeting with an acknowledgement of Indigenous Lands, spoke about the necessity of resisting harmful anti-immigration rhetoric, and highlighted the importance of immediate climate action: "There are no jobs on a dead planet."

    Patty Coates, Secretary-Treasurer of the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL), spoke about the importance of in-person conversations with voters, especially in a highly digitized and highly polarizing world. One of the distinguishing features of election campaigning today is that so much of the conversation is happening online, rather than in person through door-knocking-- a face-to-face conversation can make all the difference.

    Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), framed his remarks around the accomplishments of the Canadian labour movement since the Harper government as well as the stakes for working people in the coming election.

    Some of labour's accomplishments include: expanding retirement security, pushing back against unfair labour legislations, banning asbestos, securing pay equity legislation, supporting survivors of domestic violence, creating a Just Transition Task Force to make recommendations to support workers affected by climate change policies, and strengthening union-based apprenticeship training.
