Stephanie Jackson joins WTUL News and Views in the studio to discuss Ride New Orleans' current campaign asking elected officials and Transdev to redo their new Ferry Terminal replacement design, as it is a "Design Disaster" for riders. The campaign is pushing for the redesign to take into consideration the needs of ferry riders and to include a footbridge over the train tracks and shelter near the boarding area for folks waiting to board.

Support New Orleans transit riders and Ride New Orleans today, Wednesday, March 22nd at 4:00 pm as they rally for a design that meets the needs of New Orleans transit riders.
