“Cheap transportation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015 NEW

Cost 1.25 to get to our destination but u can buy all day pass. A local told us not to attempt to purchase out ticket at the machine bc it doesn't work all the time and likes to take ur $. U can buy it from the conductor if u have exact change. We ride this to the cemetery and back. Very inexpensive and easier than worrying about parking. Looked like it runs to a variety of places just read the front of the car to see where it's going to stop and drop off. We seen Harrah's... Cemetery ...

“History & Convenience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015 NEW

The Streetcars are an inexpensive and convenient way to get around to many of the things your came to NOLA to see. Three bucks lets you ride all day on all the lines which frame the French Quarter and also take you out towards the WWII Museum and other spots of interest. The additional appeal is that you get to experience a ride back in time on these old, tried and true conveyances. (Sorry, the streetcard named "Deisre" is in San Francisco these days.)

“Travel back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015 NEW

Enjoyed a few trips on the streetcars during our last visit. They are a connection to a nostalgic bygone era. The cars are slow, the drivers are charismatic and helpful and they don't appear to be on a schedule. Perfect for a leisurely ride around town. Don't forget that these are real streetcars and not tour vehicles so you may or may not get a seat/view. Great value at 1.50 per person.

“Woo hoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2015 NEW

Only rode the St Charles streetcar in its entirety but not all at once. Allowed us to see places & things we normally would not have had we stayed in the touristy areas. Day pass is a whole $3 & worth the occasional standing while packed.

“Great way to get around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2015 NEW

Most recently used the streetcar to get to City Park.
So easy and convenient. The St Charles line a bit touristy but fun.
