Campanella Leland

Tulane was not the first institution of higher learning in this section of present-day uptown New Orleans. In 1873, twenty-one years before Tulane moved to its current campus, Baptists in New York established Leland University on St. Charles Avenue between Newcomb Boulevard and Audubon Street. Dedicated to the education of emancipated African Americans, Leland thrived at this location until rising real estate values and damage from a 1915 hurricane led to its relocation to Baton Rouge. Read more about Leland University here.


--Prof. Rich Campanella, Tulane School of Architecture

The Tulane University Shuttles and Transportation system helps you travel safely and easily to, from, and around our campuses. Providing over 260,000 rides annually to the Tulane and Loyola University communities, we offer commuter connections to employees (faculty and staff) and students between the uptown, health sciences, Elmwood and University Square campuses, the Papillon Apartments, and shopping and entertainment venues in and around the greater New Orleans area. The Gold Zone, an on-demand, point-to-point van service, is available 7 nights a week. 

We also collaborate with the Center for Public Service to provide our many students, faculty and staff involved in service learning projects throughout the area with convenient, efficient transportation. In addition to the university-provided transportation, we partner with many transportation providers in the city for chartered school bus or motorcoach transportation, hired car or cab service, airport transportation, rental cars and car sharing. More information on these services can be found above. 

When Tulane Shuttles and Transportation is used in conjunction with our many transportation partners and the RTA, riders have access to year-round integrated transportation. 


Requests for service learning and group transportation should be done via the Tulane Transportation Request System (TTRS).
