Just a short message mentioning the under mentioned Magazine St. bus route. Unlike most NORTA bus routes which have a passing bus only every 25-60 minutes, the Magazine St. bus passes every 16-21 minutes between 6:30 AM and 6:00 PM on weekdays, and every 21 minutes between 9:30 AM and 5:15 PM on the weekends. The Magazine St. Bus is the only direct public transit route from the French Quarter/Central Business District (CBD) to the Audubon Park Zoo (about 25 minutes from Canal St. to the Zoo). Magazine St. offers many shopping, restaurant and bar opportunities, but most such locations are in the CBD or close to the major cross streets (Jackson, Washington, Louisiana, Napoleon, Jefferson), and the major cross streets are about a ½ mile apart. The Magazine St. bus allows a means to explore this interesting and entertaining portion of New Orleans.
