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.

We caught the streetcar to get to Washington Street to take a walking tour. It was a comfortable mode of transportation that allowed to see some of the sites along the way. The driver was very helpful and it was a new experience for us. We took it back after the tour.

You can’t be in Nola and not ride a Streetcar. There so cheap and we took one to the cemetery’s. Get a free map and guide and use them to site see.

Cheap method of transport, but limited routes. A fun way to travel around the city and slightly quicker than walking. At only $3 a day per person its worth the experience.

After attending a conference all day I wanted to do something fun in the evening even though I was traveling as a solo female. Riding the streetcar was a nice option because I went all around town without having to walk around by myself. I got a lot of value out of the $3 day pass!
