LA Swift removing stops on Baton Rouge/New Orleans route
Tuesday, September 19, 2006 at 12:00:00 AM

BATON ROUGE, La.LA Swift, the free bus service that transports displaced residents, workers and job-seekers between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, will discontinue service at the Highland Road and Sorrento stops as of Sept. 23.

The decision to discontinue service at these stops is a result of low rider numbers.  The number of riders for these two stops is less than 3 percent of the total rider-ship for the service. 

The bus service will continue making stops in LaPlace in addition to providing express service between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Updated schedules and further details are available at and through DOTD’s Customer Service Center at (225) 379-1232 or toll-free at (877) 4LA-DOTD (1-877-452-3683).
