Tulane and Loyola students can ride university shuttles for free! The Green Line is especially useful. Check schedules and maps before departing. Green Line stops are flagged with green markers on our Service Learning Google Map. All university shuttles are now trackable online, including smartphones!
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.
