Getting around for Mardi Gras
Traffic and street closures may increase wait time for your driver to pick you up. Make sure you are waiting in a safe area for your ride. You can also contact your driver to coordinate the best pickup location.
When leaving the parades, road closures may make it difficult to get to your end destination.
For the majority of destinations in New Orleans, we recommend walking outside of the shaded road closure area before requesting.
