Every day you and your team will be responsible for getting from Camp Restore to your work site(s), as we do not provide any transportation for volunteer groups. We recommend bringing or renting minivans or 12-passenger vans as the most convenient and efficient mode of transportation around town. Many groups have also successfully used charter buses.
We don’t suggest relying on taxis/Uber, etc. or public transportation for getting to-and-from worksites. Taxis/Uber, etc. can be costly and public transit often doesn’t provide a quick route to worksites.
That being said, in New Orleans, streetcars are a very enjoyable way of taking in the neighborhoods along St. Charles Avenue, or making your way down Canal Street toward the French Quarter and the Mississippi River. In Detroit, the People Mover works well for getting around downtown, and new light rail lines are being added.
