Service Learning Transportation
Visit our Service Learning Map to see where service learning takes place.
All students who regularly travel off-campus for service learning are entitled to a 10% transportation credit toward service learning hours. This means that 10% of a student's total required hours can be counted toward transportation. For example, if a student must do 20 hours of service learning, 2 hours can be counted toward transportation. If a student documents 18 hours of on-site service time, requirements have been met.
Students have the following transportation options:
Many agencies are within easy biking distance of Loyola. Check agency descriptions for approximate biking time. If you do not have your own bike, the Office of Service Learning offers free daily bike use through our free bikeshare program, Cycloserve.
Tulane and Loyola students can ride university shuttles for free! The Green Line is particularly useful for service learning students. Not sure when to pick up the Green Line? Check the schedule. Not sure where pickup and dropoff points are? All Green Line stops are marked on our Service Learning Map. All shuttles are now trackable and mappable online and on smartphones! Check agency descriptions for routes and approximate times.
New Orleans' public transportation system is a good way to reach many service learning destinations. Check agency descriptions for approximate transit time and route suggestions. Route maps, schedules, and other detailed information are available at www.norta.com. Maps and schedules can also be found outside Bobet 113. Students who use public transit to reach a service learning destination are eligible for free tokens from the Office of Service Learning! Learn more here.
Some agencies are easiest to reach by car. If you have access to a car and want to use it to get to a service learning agency or provide rides to fellow service learning students, the Office of Service Learning can provide prepaid gas cards to offset fuel costs. Learn more here.
