With several lines sprawling throughout New Orleans, these RTA Streetcars will take you around some of the best places to explore in the city. Each line runs a different path and features different stops and attractions in the area. Plus, if you are staying for a few days, check out the Jazzy Pass!

The St. Charles Streetcar Line started in 1835, making it the oldest operating line in the world! This line is on the National Register of Historic Places. The current streetcars were built in the 1920s and have been restored to still provide timely service to New Orleans visitors and residents alike.

Some of the other streetcar lines include Canal Street, Riverfront, Loyola and Rampart/St. Claude.

The RTA Streetcars feature Jazzy Passes, which include 1-day, 3-day or 31-day options. Otherwise there is a small fare for each ride. Not only does the RTA line include the street cars, it also connects to local bus lines. You can learn more about Jazzy Pass or single-fare costs by visiting the official website here.
