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.

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We did this as a family and made a party out of it...The Street car picks you up at St Charles St and takes you through Canal Street and downtown New Orleans...Always good to do the first time you're in NOLA.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The only thing that is needed is for the city to finish its restoration so that you can take the whole route.

Buy a $3 day pass and take a stroll around the garden district for an interesting morning. Look out for the house where Benjamin Button was filmed

“Great way to see Saint Charles avenue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is a fun way to see many of the sights along St. Charles. Most of the operators are very friendly and will provide you with bits of information as the trip progresses. Great way to spend some time seeing the Garden District and Loyola and Tulane Universities.

“Best Value for site seeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Can buy a $3.00 day pass and ride the streetcar to get an taste of old and new New Orleans. Best way to get to the Garden District with a charm all its own.
