New RTA Assistance Program for Blind and Deaf-Blind Riders
Are you visually impaired, blind, or Deaf-blind and use public transportation in New Orleans?
On May 22nd Regional Transit Authority (RTA), in partnership with Lighthouse Louisiana, is launching the Assistance Card Program. The program improves communication between the public transit operator and passenger through color-coded cards that signal to the transit operator information regarding the accommodations needed for the passenger.
The cards can be obtained at Lighthouse Louisiana’s New Orleans location, 123 State Street, or at RTA Headquarters, 2817 Canal Street. To request assistance cards, to ask questions, or to inquire about travel training, contact the Lighthouse Louisiana Information & Referral line at 504-899-4501 x 245. Brailed cards are available upon request.
