You can get to so many places on the Streetcar network. Get the All-day pass for $3 and you can get from the Garden District to the French Quarter in like ten minutes.

Incredibly cheap. $3.00 gets you and all day ride as much as you want pass. We rode from Canal St. Down St. Charles Ave and up Carrelton.

All-day pass is inexpensive and good for any public transportation venue. We rode the Canal Street line from the river to the cemetery.

I took the cable cars to the cemetery then you get to see not just down town NOLA but also more local. It is quite nice and the cars are so cute. I think it was around USD 1,5.

Last week we spent four days in the warehouse district and daily we took the street cars over to visit locations in the Garden District it was a wonderful ride and for $1.25 fare can't beat it it's a great way to travel east west across neighborhoods in New Orleans

Great transportation other than walking and grabbing a cab. Convenient and accessible around New Orleans area. You pay as you hop on the streetcars.

These are are public transportation and are as old as medusa but are fun to ride as long as it is not too crowded or too hot. We like to take the one from downtown to Audubon park
