Ground Transportation

If your plans during Fall Convention call for a means of transportation, New Orleans has these resources for travelers looking for a ride.

Uber & Lyft

Uber and Lyft are both available in New Orleans. Simply download the Uber or Lyft apps on your smartphone and use it to request a car to take you to your destination. Both services are similar and utilize local resident drivers. All cars are clean and drivers are friendly. The app makes it easy to pay for rides without the exchange of money directly with the driver.

Local Taxi Drivers

Exact fares depend on final destination. If you choose to use this service, make sure you only pay one price for your ride and not a per person rate.
