Canal Street Ferry Weekday Hours Expanding In August

Jul 30, 2014

Starting Aug. 1, New Orleans' Canal Street ferry will be adding more than four hours to weekday schedules.

The Algiers Economic Development Foundation says Veolia Transportation plans to run the ferry from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays. It now runs from 7:15 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:15 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays.

Weekend schedules will remain 10:45 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 10:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

Veolia runs the ferries for New Orleans' Regional Transit Authority.

On July 30, evening hours will be added for the foundation's Wednesdays on the Point concert. Starting times won't change. But the last trip from Algiers Landing will leave at 9:15 p.m. and the last one from Canal Street at 9:30 p.m.
