Holiday Shuttle


LSU Student Government and the LSU Family Association collaborate annually to sponsor a holiday shuttle program.

Shuttles for the 2023-2024 academic year are available for Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break to transport current LSU students to and from the New Orleans Airport.

All shuttle questions may be directed to the LSU Family Association at 225-578-1173 or


Pre-registration for the Spring Break Holiday Shuttle is now closed.

If you did not pre-register for the Holiday Shuttle, you may register onsite. Please look for the purple LSU Tiger Trails bus outside of Terminal Level 3 of the New Orleans Airport. This is the upper level outside of departures.

Once you collect your baggage from baggage claim on Terminal Level 1, you will need to take the escalator or elevator back up to Level 3. Shuttles will arrive outside of Terminal Level 3 approx. 15 minutes prior to the scheduled shuttle pick-up times. Shuttles may have to circle the concourse, so please wait outside for the shuttle. The shuttle driver will ask you to complete the onsite registration form to collect your information and grant you access to ride the shuttle.
