In Transit

The New Orleans Regional Transition Authority is necessary. The bus and street car system transports frontline workers to their jobs, riders to the grocery store, and the sick to their doctors. But while the bus operators continue to fight for proper PPE, hazard pay, and sick time off, the bus remains a breeding ground for COVID-19. This documentary short follows the stories of the riders and the drivers, weaving their daily journeys together to illuminate a system that threatens the lives of all.
