transportation

I wanted to check in with info about transportation and its costs to help with budgeting.

To the best of my knowledge no one who is attending will be bringing a car, so we will be relying on foot, bus/streetcar, and taxi.

From the airport:
A cab ride costs $33.00 from the airport to the Central Business District (CBD) for one person and $14.00 (per passenger) for three or more passengers. Pick-up is on the lower level, outside the baggage claim area. There may be an additional charge for extra baggage.

I think that Tarah, Lou and T are arriving around noon on Thursday and planning to share a cab. Lee and Laura, do you have arrival plans set?


There is a bus stop close to where we are staying on the #5 route. This route runs hourly and only between about 6am - 6pm. It does go right to the French Quarter and from there we can transfer to the Streetcar or other buses for out of Quarter adventures.

Buses and streetcars cost $1.25 per ride. Three-day passes are available for $12 so we may want to look into that. Passes should be readily available once we arrive.

Thanks for this Megan!

I will make a separate post about this to ensure everyone will see it, but I just found out check-in at The Lookout is not until 2:00 p.m.

I get there Thursday at 5:10 pm (good Lord willing and the Creeks don't rise).

Thanks Megan. Have you ever taken the shuttle from the airport? I'm wondering if that would be the best way to get to the hotel on Wed.

I haven't. I did cabs when I was there before and that was ok. I'm sure the airport shuttle is fine too, probably similar to any other shuttle. I didn't know they had one!
