R T A, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • Absolutely horrible at night, to say the least. It is possible u can get killed or robbed waiting on the bus. The only thing this city cares about are these pissy drunkn drugn ass tourists, that's why the canal streetcars run like clock work.

  • My bus has had inconsistent timing for the past two weeks. Either I stand in the heat waiting for half an hour, or I miss it completely because it arrives early. Once I'm on the bus the trip is perfectly fine though.

  • Love the day pass prices. But it seems like their scheduling is off. We'll wait 20 minutes for a street car, then three in a row will come. Also, it would be nice if the drivers stopped when I pulled the cord.

  • The RTA streetcars are a good way to travel the downtown areas of NOLA. My guess is that the bus lines that run through the more "toney" areas of NOLA will run faster than those serving the less-toney areas. There is an all-day pass for $3 -- good for all NOLA RTA streetcars and buses.

  • I park & use the Streetcar to & from work. The early morning drivers are very professional, courteous, safe drivers and recognize the regular rider on their routes🤗 At work, I make sure there's "always" Streetcar maps for our tourist to enjoy the city by buying a $3 or Jazzy Pass. I love the different connections that enable us to get around and save on the expensive parking charges in the downtown area😆 Thank You RTA and all of the Canal Street connection Drivers!!...
