New Orleans Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY)
Jefferson Transit (JeT) offers bus service to downtown
New Orleans on route E-2, Airport Route. Pick up the
bus on the top level outside of Delta ticketing on the
WEEKDAYS FROM 5:20am UNTIL 6:14pm
Buses run about every 40 minutes from 5:20am until
6:14pm weekdays. During these times, the bus will take
you into New Orleans and drop you off about two blocks
from the French Quarter. Downtown and French Quarter
hotels are within walking distance of the bus stop, but I
suggest you have a map as this area can be confusing.
Fare is $2.00 to go into New Orleans.
WEEKDAYS AFTER 6:14pm and WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS
On weekdays, there is bus service from the airport at 7:12pm, 8:16pm and 9:20pm, however the bus does not go
into New Orleans. You will need to transfer to an RTA bus. The fare at these times are $1.50. RTA bus 39
connects with the JeT bus at the drop off point (Tulane and Carrollton) and will take you to the corner of Canal
Street at Elks Place, at the northwest corner of the French Quarter. Fare for the RTA bus is $1.25, and transfers
from the JeT cannot be used, as they are two different bus companies. RTA also has a day pass for $3.00 that
includes the streetcars. More information about RTA at www.norta.com or call 225-357-3900. Most hotels in the
French Quarter, downtown and on Canal Street are in walking distance of the bus stop. RTA bus 27 (transfer
also available at Tulane and Carrollton) goes into the Garden District down Louisiana Street.
On weekends, the JeT bus operates on Saturdays from 6:24am until 9:20pm every 30 to 60 minutes, and
Sundays from 7:28am until 9:20pm every 65 minutes, but stops at the Jefferson Parish line (Tulane and
Carrollton) and does not go into New Orleans. Follow the same instructions above for weekdays after 6:14pm.
