We used the streetcar to get to the garden district. It's only $1.25 or .40 for seniors. They run about every 10 minutes.

This is a great way to get around without a car. For $3 you can get an all day pass. You can travel to all tourist areas on the cheap and have a historical experience too.

Public transportation at its simplest. The RTA app shows you a route map with live symbols showing the trolleys as they move on the route. Buy tix with cc then redeem as you board.

The small children always enjoy riding the street cars with the wind blowing in their hair. I do not normally ride any other than the one along the River. From the Riverwalk to the French Market. I do not remember the exact price however I know it was not any more than a few quarters per person.

It may be a bit of a wait to catch a streetcar, but the price is right and you get to meet people. And it runs all the time.

Easy and inexpensive. You can literally get anywhere in New Orleans using the streetcars. 3 day pass only $9

This was one of the best parts of the trip. We got to ride with the locals for $3 a day! We took the main line, the red line I believe, from start to finish (by the cemeteries) and we took the green line (I believe) to the other side where the homes are. The conductors are seasoned and know the routes very well. It's kind of like a self guided tour. You are never stranded as they run about 20 mins apart, give or take. They are equipped with ramps for those in a wheelchair. It's a street car so don't expect luxuries, just a raw NOLA experience.

We were told by several folks including our hotel concierge that we could purchase a 3 day pass from the driver. No no no, the driver said we had to go “wherever” so we got the 1 day pass.

I suggest you go on line & purchase your passes & have them on your phone. There is a scanner to use.

We stayed in the Garden District and used the RTA St. Charles and Canal Streets Streetcars. We found the Streetcars easy to use, enjoyed traveling with the locals, and an inexpensive way to get around. Highly recommend a one day or multi-day pass.

We loved the street car. Good way to see the city. Inexpensive. Some of the cars were not accurate about the destination but driver was helpful.
