Excellent service, mostly on time, however not always. Sometimes the buses just flat out don't come, or if you're transferring, as I do a lot, the bus or streetcar might be slow and you miss the one you were gonna take after. This happened to me, I had took the Canal streetcar and was waiting for the Lakeview bus, but it was coming in a half hour. It was pouring rain, so I ended up taking the streetcar back. The Lakeview bus is a bad example, though, considering that they run in a loop rather than a two-way line. Overall, they have pretty good service. The drivers on the routes I use most often (10, 11, 12) are very nice and helpful.
Completely unreliable. It CAN get you where you are trying to go. But your train may just be taken out of service 5 stops short of its destination to leave you waiting for 30 minutes for the next one in the pouring rain. If you must take this to work you should be aiming to take the train BEFORE the one you need. Frequently scheduled rush hour runs are skipped or early.
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.
