Details about traveling to and in New Orleans.


Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport

Taxis are located outside of Baggage Claim 7. Fares to the French Quarter are $36 for up to two people, or $15 per person for 3 or more people.

The Airport Shuttle departs from between Baggage Claim 3 and 4. Tickets should be purchased before boarding at the ticket booth; the cost is $24.

Public transit is available to Downtown from Level 3, but neither option goes directly to the hotels. The Veterans (E1) bus stops at City Park Avenue and Canal Boulevard near the Canal Streetcar that goes to the conference hotels. The Airport Express (202) stops at Duncan Plaza, which is a 10-15 minute walk from the hotels or a 6 minute walk to the Canal and St. Charles Streetcars.

Car rental agencies are located at the MSY Rental Car Center (open 24/7) which is accessed by the free Car Lot Shuttle.
