Enjoyed the scenery during the ride. Only complaint is it began raining during the ride and they filled the car to above capacity. As many people standing in the aisle as were seated. It became very uncomfortable.

We were in New Orleans for 3 days while our Celebrity cruise ship docked in port in April for the Jazz Fest. The RTA has 5 different streetcar routes throughout the city, making it easy to see most of NOLA. There was a streetcar stop...More

This is a great way to get around NOLA. You pay $3 for a 24 hr pass (need exact change). You can jump on and off as often and you need to. Its a great way to see the garden district as well.

This is a great deal, a single ride is $1.25 or a 24 hour ride pass for $3.00. Fun experience and after a long day of walking it is worthwhile. Prepare yourself by looking at a map and mapping out your pickup and stop. I...More

Took the green line to the garden street and it’s a must do while you are in New Orleans. You purchase your pass on the street car (don’t call it a trolley) for $3 and you can ride all day. Another place that you have...More

Nice experience that could be charming but... The scheduling and tracking on the mobile app is not accurate, exact fare is required, operators were not very friendly, streetcars can be very crowded and there are very few hand straps for standers to hang on to.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Hi. Take street car from Corner of Canal St & St Charles. Street Car takes you down St charles thru Garden District. You'll have to double check regarding round trip but either way its worth it to me!

If you are going to be in town a few days, they offer a $9 3-Day pass. It was definitely worth it---and do make sure you take the ride on the St. Charles line--easy and inexpensive tourist fun!
