Why the petition:
Help us show the federal government how much we want a streetcar on St. Claude Avenue!
The U.S. Department of Transportation is giving out $500 million in competitive TIGER IV grants for transportation projects across the country and we want some of that money for New Orleans. Our very own Regional Transit Authority wants to bring a streetcar down St. Claude Avenue to Poland Avenue and they've got their eye on the TIGER. The more community support that exists for the RTA's application, the more likely it is to be awarded funding.
The deadline is March 14th and we're aiming for at least 1,000 signatures so tell your friends and family.
Be sure to tell us why you want a streetcar on St. Claude Avenue in the comment section.
