R T A, New Orleans Reviews
Let the good times roll. Ride and transfer trolley all day. Best value. Travel downtown district, college district, park district and city park. Pass numerous famous restaurants, homes and sites.
Basically the worst public transportation I've ever experienced. Schedules and apps are absolutely useless because they are never on time (if they ever show up). A multimillion tourists per year city without any adequate airport public transportation speaks enough. Feel sorry for all the people who rely on rta to work every day... I'm pretty sure everyone who rated it more than a 1 star are paid people, family members or high tourist.
This might be good in some other areas but the buses and street cars on st charles just sucks man. If you are a tourist and have all the time of the world to waste, that's ok but for people like me that depend on it to work and come back home is a pain. Sometimes they pass before time and have a month that street car isn't going to canal and the transfers take forever. I just think that a town like New Orleans should work better on transportation since there is so many tourists everyday, in special on this line.
Well I know not to take the 202 Airport Bus cause if it breaks down you're gonna wait 2HOURS for another one. But hey.
VERY DISGUSTED WITH RTA and the way they handle their citizens of NOLA East, Saturday on 2-10-18, I left my home at 8:30 am in order to catch the 8:44 am Lake Forest #64 heading to Bullard. Well of course I called the help line to see when my bus would be coming, the first called I made I held on the line more than 20 minutes, no answer, I called back and waiting another 15 minutes before I reached someone. I was told by the operator that the bus would not be there until 9:44 am with the nastiest attitude, due to its the only bus running on the line and there was no other buses available, the bus was again later than 9:44 it came at 10 am, the time I'm suppose to be at work REALLY!!!! Its like screw the people during the weekend, we must get to work on time too, regardless of the weekend. But this is not my only issue this bus is always late, no consistency. RTA, have more #65 Crowder/Read buses on the line and it just doesn't make any sense when a lot of customers uses the #64. The #64 bus goes all the way to Little Woods/Michoud and have to come back and go to Elks place and then head back to the East. Something must and should be done about this serious matter. There should be more than one bus on the line, during the weekend. It is not our fault that you have, broken inoperable buses that aren't ever available to the patrons of New Orleans, why can't more buses be available? RTA makes enough money through the tourist industry and the regular patrons who utilizes the buses on a daily basis. If it wouldn't be for the regular paying local customers RTA would be outta a job. When there are major events in the city, RTA tend to put more buses on the line for the tourists in downtown and uptown areas, we're not stupid!!! GET IT TOGETHER PLEASE!!! I make complaints, by phone and by email and have yet to get a response back from anyone, so guess what ya'll don't even waste your breathe or time to make a complaint. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE CITIZENS OF NEW ORLEANS!!
