Public Transit

Loyola service learning and CBFWS students who use New Orleans streetcars and buses to get to their service learning sites are eligible to receive RTA transportation assistances (either in the form of tokens or passes) from our office located in Bobet 113.  Note: office hours are MWF 2-3pm and TTh 1-2 pm.  You can also find route maps & schedules for most streetcar and bus lines outside Bobet 113.

  • Service learning students will have a sufficient number of passes available to them throughout the semester.  Enough passes will be given for students to complete their service learning hours, going once a week over the course of the semester.  
  • CBFWS students who use public transit will be given a sufficient number of RTA tokens to travel to and from their agencies or work sites enough times to complete their hours.
  • RTA assistances obtained from OCELTS are for service learning and/or CBFWS use only.  Using OCELTS-issued tokens or passes for personal use is strictly forbidden.
  • Some routes require riders to transfer from one streetcar or bus line to another.  Transfers can be purchased from any streetcar or bus driver for $0.25.  Students are responsible for purchasing their own transfers, and are not to use tokens in lieu of transfers.
  • Students are responsible for replacing lost or stolen tokens/passes.  Lost or stolen tokens/passes cannot be replaced by OCELTS.
