This bus service between Baton Rouge and New Orleans serves 10,000 people a month in transporting people to jobs, school. medical appointments and hurricane restoration since losing their homes in Hurricane Katrina and being forced to live outside of the New Orleans area. Most riders have no other form of transportation.
We the residents of the State of Louisiana and riders who utilize the LA Swift bus service are petitioning the State of Louisiana to subsidize this program and find the necessary $750,000 needed to fund this program for another year. Over 10,000 people a month use this very needy bus service to travel from Baton Rouge to New Orleans for work, school, medical appointments and continued hurricane restoration. The service ends on June 30th. We need help now!
