  1. Much appreciated! I will add that we have contacted the NORTA office and they have been very helpful. To use the paratransit services on a visit to New Orleans, we were asked to provide proof that my husband qualified for paratransit services in our home town. Once that was established, we were assigned a NORTA client number and can request transport, including to and from the airport, while we’re there – with a one to five day advance notice.
