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.
For $3 (you need cash) you can get a day pass good for all the streetcars and buses on the system. We stayed in the Superdome area and used the Canal Street and River lines to get back and forth to the French Quarter multiple times. Kids had a great time riding the trolleys. Most the time there was plenty of seating only had to stand on two of the rides (midweek, weekends I"m sure are more crowded). Trolley's were clean. Canal street line had A/C which was big plus. Trolley's came about every 15-20 minutes. Drivers were always very helpful. Highly recommend taking RTA to get around vs driving.
