Water taxis

Summary

Participants of the community engagement projects drew routes through the interconnected system of bayous and canals which could be used by water taxis on festival days, as well as by canoes, kayaks, or charter tours year round. The 16 mile trail passes close to restaurants, parks, and through various bayou ecosystems. The trail also further connects the communities of Jean Lafitte, Barataria, Crown Point, and Lafitte. Most importantly, water taxis and their routes provide a transportation option that can be utilized by residents and visitors in the event that roadways become inundated with water during storm events.
