DOTD to hold swap meets for GeauxPass Customers

DOTD to hold swap meets for GeauxPass Customers

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces it will hold two ‘swap meets’ for GeauxPass customers to exchange the large hard-case tags for smaller, more secure sticker tags. Two events are planned in Grand Isle on the following dates: January 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Grand Isle Multiplex Center, 3101 Hwy. 1 and February 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sureway Supermarket, 3209 Hwy. 1.

The GeauxPass Customer Service Center staff in Golden Meadow began transitioning to the newer tags in fall 2016. The technology that allows the older tags to work will be phased out in late Spring 2017. Anyone who has a hard-case tag can bring it to the Golden Meadow GeauxPass Customer Service Center between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday to have it swapped out for a newer tag.

This change is especially important for Grand Isle residents, who use non-revenue tags to cross the LA 1 toll bridge at no cost. These tags must be updated to continue to cross the bridge for free.

Motorists can open a GeauxPass account at the swap meet, Golden Meadow Customer Service Center, located at 1821 Hwy. 3235, or online by visiting
