Passenger Information

  • Please request pick-ups and drop-offs only at the authorized Taxicab & Hired Car Services Zone. The Taxicab & Hired Car Services Zone is the only location on the Tulane University uptown campus where pick-ups and drop-offs can be made. It is located on the corner of Janet Yulman Way and Willow Street in front of PJ's Coffee. Signs are in place to indicate the beginning and end of the zone. Between 7pm and 7am Monday-Sunday, taxicabs and hired cars can pick up anywhere on campus. Please note that all traffic laws must be observed.
  • You are encouraged to prearrange transportation to ensure that a vehicle is available for you, especially when going to the airport. 
  • Be on the lookout for your requested transportation company or driver and be ready to board the vehicle when they arrive.
  • If you have requested a vehicle by phone or mobile app and decide not to use the service, cancel the request by either calling the company or using the app. If you have an account with the company and do not cancel service, a cancellation fee may be charged.
  • In case of emergency, contact the Tulane Police Department (TUPD) at 504-865-5911.
  • To report other issues, email or call 504-314-7433. Be sure to provide as much information as possible when reporting an issue. Examples of issues that we want to be informed about include rude behavior on the part of the driver, a dirty or unsafe vehicle, credit card machine in taxicab unavailable or broken, or denial of transportation based on your destination. 
  • We are also interested in positive feedback! Email or call 504-314-7433. Be sure to provide as much information as possible, including company, name of driver, time of service, and vehicle number.
