Owner description: Get wherever you want to go in New Orleans with the Regional Transit Authority (RTA). Our extensive network of buses and streetcars winds throughout every neighborhood of the Crescent City. From Uptown to Downtown, from Lakeview to the Lower Nine, from Mid-City across the Mississippi River and to the parish lines, the RTA goes there.As streetcars glide underneath grand live oaks and past stately mansions, they offer up relaxing views of the beauty, charm and history of New Orleans for little cost. When riders board these historic vehicles they are boarding a piece of movable New Orleans history. The RTA operates three streetcar lines: the famous, historic St. Charles line, the Canal Street line, and the Riverfront line. All lines either run along or intersect with Canal Street in the area between the French Quarter and the Central Business District (CBD) connecting Uptown/Garden District, Carrollton, Mid-City, City Park and the Marigny. The RTA is currently adding more Streetcar lines.

great way to get around. sometimes you can use a break from all the walking so just hop on and off. only a few bucks for a 24 hour pass. definitely worth considering!

The train seem slow but the honest truth is there’s no way you could keep up with them… It’s like getting a glimpse into the past. Kind of a must do if you want to feel like you experienced New Orleans.

Ride for fun not to get anywhere. It is really too bad mass transit in NOLA is so bad. Riding was fun for a tourists and that’s about it.

No matter what you call them (trolleys where I grew up) streetcars here in NOLA
go back in time. If you enjoy being packed onboard like a can of sardines, fighting your way thru to get on or to not miss you stop getting off, stopping at traffic lights every block or two, then streetcars are the way to go!

On the good side of things, streetcars are only $1.25 a trip and our driver was very nice, even yelling out when we arrived at the stop we asked her to announce for us. The weather was great but I can just imagine what it’s like riding in the summer.

Can now tell everyone “I rode a streetcar when we visited New Orleans”.
