Night buses

Seems like a step in the right direction.  Especially since the parking is too damn high downtown.
Nine routes would add overnight service under the proposed changes: No. 39 Tulane, No. 47 Canal-Cemeteries streetcar, No. 52 St. Bernard-Paris Avenue, No. 55 Elysian Fields, No. 63 New Orleans East Owl, No. 84 Galvez, No. 88 St. Claude, No. 94 Broad and No. 114 Gen. DeGaulle-Tullis.

Weekend service is to be increased or begun on other lines: No. 10 Tchoupitoulas, No. 27 Louisiana, No. 51 St. Bernard-St. Anthony, No. 57 Franklin, No. 60 Hayne and No. 102 Gen. Meyer.

Some lines will also get longer routes or changes to the route map.
They also say they're adding an airport express service. All of this sounds good but clearly isn't enougb. Which is why it's a good idea to reward somewhat good behavior by going down and yelling at them some more if you have the time.
The new services, which are expected to come online in March, will be discussed at a public hearing at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the RTA headquarters, 2817 Canal St.
