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.

Took Trolley down St. Charles to the end and turned around and came back. Estimate about 40 minutes each way. Nice slow ride past Tulane, Loyola and the Zoo and past some nice mansions. Have to get off the trolley to fully appreciate the Garden district and walk around a couple block area off of 3rd street.

We stayed at Prytania Park Hotel (Garden District) and walked one block to catch the RTA Transit Street car in the center of the road. It costs $1.25 per person each way or $3.00 per person per day. Must be exact change when boarding. We waited less than 5 minutes, boarded and since most people were going downtown, we were lucky to get two seats. As we stopped at lights and stops , people got off and more boarded. It took us straight to the French Quarter in New Orleans, which is the end of this line. We got out and walked the streets, shopped and went to Dragos for grilled oysters located at the Downtown Hilton. It was great not having to drive and park in this friendly city.

We use the Streetcars for our entire trip in the city. Only took cab to/from the airport. We bought Jazzy passes online and used it all week. Great to get around the French Quarter and into the Warehouse and Garden Districts. Only had to wait in line one time the entire week.
