Cheap, gets you places and you can view stuff without driving so you can see more of NOLA. A little confusing as far as the lines go and driver is not friendly at all. But for the price, its a good experience and a nice way to just kill time or cruise along NOLA. The streetcar lowered something and a... More

To get you from Point A to a close location to Point B it is worth it. Especially when the weather is less than to be desired or you want to avoid the panhandlers. For a regular all day pass it runs $3.00 a piece.

Cheap fares but it seems like you have to wait a long time before they arrive. I walked 6 blocks before they showed up. Standing room only they need more cars on the St Charles line.

We used the street car between the French market and river walk and it was great nostalgia but you better sit down fast after you board otherwise you will be on the floor! The driver was not as friendly as the ones in San Francisco...if you had to compare the two. But I never remember it being this way when... More

Ridiculously cheap @ $2.50 for an all day pass on and off as many tram cars as you like. Take your passport/ID because if you are a senior which you must prove, then the fare is only 40 cents all day. Why cant we have these prices in the UK. The trams rattle along but that is all part of... More

The street cars run on several different routes and they have no place to purchase tickets in advance. Riders need to get on and buy the tickets from the driver. This holds up everyone while people search for change or ask questions of the driver. It would be better if you could go to a Kiosk at the platform and... More
