Transportation Assistance Program

You have an internship or a research opportunity, but suddenly you are without reliable transportation. We want to help. Apply for one of our New Orleans Regional Transit Authority Jazzy Passes through our Transportation Assistance Program.

How to Apply

The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) offers 31 Day Jazzy Passes. These passes are valid for unlimited trips on RTA buses & streetcars. They're non-transferable, start with first use, and expire 31 days after first use. The Career Development Center has purchased a number of these passes in an effort to help students attempting to gain meaningful experiential learning opportunities (e.g. internships or research opportunities) and that are in need of transportation assistance due to loss of reliable transportation or financial hardship.

If you are currently taking part in an internship or research opportunity, or about to begin such an opportunity, and in need of transportation assistance, please complete this Transportation Assistance Program Application.

Your application will be reviewed, and you will receive a response within 2-3 busy days regarding your application and next steps. If you have any questions about this service, contact Katie Krikorian at

1 Day or 5 Day Jazzy Pass Options

Do you have temporary transportation needs? The Department of Student Life and Ministry has a limited number of 1 day and 5 day passes for those in need. Email Daniel Harris (, Coordinator for Student Engagement, for more information or with any questions.
