3. Busses and Ferries
The city bus system is a classic, reliable transportation option, and if you plan on traveling across the Mississippi River, you can always catch a ride on the Algiers Ferry. For a more informational bus experience, the Hop-On Hop-Off Tour buses circulate around some of the more popular tourist areas in the city, offering pick-up every 30 minutes.
If you don't have far to go but it seems a little too far to walk, go ahead and hail a pedicab as a fun way to get around New Orleans.
Streetcars are a charming and convenient way to experience the many areas of New Orleans. Four distinct lines, each originating Downtown, will take you through the French Quarter and beyond to places you might not otherwise get to see. If you’re paying with cash, correct change is required. For adults, that means $1.25 per ride (children aged five to 12th grade are $0.50 and seniors/riders with disabilities are $0.40).
If you’re planning on riding the streetcar multiple times, we recommend purchasing a Jazzy Pass. One-day pass is $3, 3 day pass is $8.
