Project: Ride New Orleans

Ride New Orleans is a transit advocacy group that works to “enhance the quality of life in the New Orleans region by promoting safe, convenient, and affordable transportation options.” Miller Urban Consulting has helped Ride to analyze survey data from Algiers ferry riders and craft a narrative for policymakers surrounding the economic importance of the ferry for commuters and the region; Ride and its partners used their survey results to work with state legislators and find an alternative solution to keep the ferry running. Ongoing work with Ride focuses on the potential of a Transit Master Plan to help local and regional officials make the smartest possible transit decisions that will lead to future economic growth.
