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.

Buy a ticket, get a good seat, and watch the town go by. This is a great way to just see New Orleans, somewhat off the tourist path, in a leisurely style. Can be really hot during the warm months. I recommend this to everyone.

We took our entire family of 10 to New Orleans and we bought a day pass one day and went to the aquarium on the canal route.
Then we went back to where we got on and jumped on the Garden district street car to see all the homes and sights.
The all day pass was $3.00 per person and can be bought on the street car itself with correct change. Makes if very easy.
The were very busy and at times we had to stand until seats opened up but that is to be expected.
Overall it was a great way to see the sights.

These streetcars are a great way to get around parts of New Orleans and the main ones near our hotel were the riverside walk car and the Canal street car.
You can quite easily buy tickets on board and the cost is only $1.50 for adults or $3 for a day pass. Concessions were only 40cents for seniors.
The ride is smooth and quick and can hop on and off at various stations and the cars are quite frequent. A great cheap way to get around.

My wife and I took a trolley to the Market District and was a great experience . We bought a $3.00 all day pass, and was good on all city buses(air Conditioned). The driver announced the stops , was crowed but worth the experience.
