Connect the Crescent Baronne Street Canvassing

Baronne Street – Specific meeting location TBD
Help us create a connected, protected transportation network in downtown New Orleans. Opening this September!
Bike Easy, the City of New Orleans, and a wide-ranging coalition of partners are working together to bring to life a vision of our city in which vastly more locals can get around town by biking, walking, and riding transit. This September, you’ll be able to travel to and through the French Quarter and Central Business District on your way to work, the store, or to meet friends — walking across new crosswalk murals, riding on prioritized bus routes, or biking on a series of protected bike-ways featuring physical barriers keeping you safe from automobile traffic. This will be a demonstration project scheduled to stay in operation for three months.
Volunteers are crucial to making Connect the Crescent a success. Join us on August 23 from 11AM-2PM as we canvass along the bike-way corridors in and around Baronne Street! We’ll be handing out promotional information and surveying local residents and business owners on their biking and transportation habits and priorities.
