Amtrak No service to/from airport. 

www.greyhound.com - offers service from MSY to downtown New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette. For more locations and addresses see www.greyhound.com.

Mass Transit - Airport to downtown New Orleans via Jefferson Transit Authority (JET) and Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) provide 9 daily departures to downtown.  Located outside Concourse C Lobby Information Booth. 

The Airport-Downtown Express (E2) operated by JET is $2.00.  Fare boxes accept $1, $5, $10 and $20 dollar bills and all U.S. coins.  Also service to Kenner, down Airline Drive into New Orleans - approx. 50 minutes.  See  Jeffersontransit.org

RTA provides Airport Express (202) to New Orleans.  I would tell you where it departs but I read it over four times and am still confused but  they write that they serve airport to downtown.  You would be better to check it out with them but their web site isn't working today.  Don't know what to tell you but my confidence in RTA leaves a little to be desired.

Depending on schedules and fares - an alternate destination airport can work for you.  Sometimes an alternate origin may work. You may consider driving to your alternate origin airport - if necessary, overnighting at a hotel  that offers free parking while you are gone - plus provides complimentary transportation to and from the airport - usually at no charge but a tip for the driver is certainly appreciated and proper.
