For a$1.25 one way or $3.00 for an all day pass you can get around most of New Orleans. In some cases you may have to walk a block or two to get to your destination but it is an enjoyable ride and much cheaper than a Pedi cab or taxi. We rode the Riverside line from one end to... More

We visited New Orleans for the first time in March, 2014. We had heard about "streetcars" and "trolleys", but had never experienced them anywhere. When we arrived at our hotel, the gentleman took our car, parked it, and we never saw it again for four days, didn't even know where it was, until we were preparing to leave. We got... More

Rode the street car because it was inexpensive way to get around. We got on the streetcar next to the Drury Inn, she yelled at us when asked to purchase 3 all day passes, told us to hurry up and go sit down, couldn't even ask another question. She got to Canal and told everyone its the end of the... More

$3.00 gets you an "All Day" ticket which expires at 4am the following morning. This ticket allows you to ride the Street Cars AND buses all day. A magnificent and efficient way to get around. Be prepared for a BIG step up into the car but you may be lucky and get a super helpful conductor though they were few... More

These look lovely and are great for photos. They are also quite convenient for getting up and down Canal st but they do not really run to a schedule so you can be left waiting for a while.

Do it just to say that you took a ride on a street car. Its a great way to get to the garden district. one downfall is that its being worked on. you will have to get off and transfer to a bus to get you the rest of the way.

I liked the speed and the price of the street car. The drivers were also friendly. The cars take you to the most important sights.

Bumpy but fun except for the temporary disruption of having to shuttle on a bus because of the construction. Would do it again for sure. A real must.

Take the St Charles street car from Canal Street past the CBD, Garden District, Tulane University, and Audubon Park...then ride it all the way back! Perfect, and cheap ($3 for an all day pass) way to see beautiful areas of the city, and you can get off and on at any stop you like.
