A cheap and easy way to get around, can be crowded at times and hot as some of the trams are not air conditioned.

We loved riding the trolley - our first look at the city! Get the online app and purchase a pass online. We decided to purchase a jazzy pass for our stay in NOLA! Being first-time riders the driver was very kind and made sure he...More

This was my first time really using RTA streetcars and now I feel like I've been missing out. Super easy to navigate and really efficient. You can get most places using this transit for not a whole lot of money. Sometimes they use the AC...More

Our grandson loves trains, so we thought this would be a good way to see part of the city. We weren't disappointed. The daily pass was just the things for use to see the various sights of the city.

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

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
