In addition to the discounted ticket offer, the Office of Student Affairs is collaborating with Tulane University Shuttles & Transportation to provide free shuttle service during the fest’s first weekend.

On Saturday (April 23) and Sunday (April 24), shuttles will run continuously from the uptown campus between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Rather than dealing with fighting traffic or finding parking, festival goers can simply show their Splash Card to catch a convenient ride to the Fair Grounds. Four guests are permitted on the shuttle per Splash Card.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival takes place from Friday (April 22) to Sunday (April 24) and from Thursday, April 28, to Sunday, May 1. Get the shuttle schedule here.
