The world famous New Orleans Trolley Introduced in the 19th century as a means of public transportation, the Trolleys, although much improved, still serve the same purpose. They are used by residents every day, and have become quite an attraction for visitors to the city.
The St. Charles Avenue Trolley route begins at the intersection of Carrolton and Claiborne Avenues. They travel from that point, river bound along Carrolton, then turn onto St. Charles Avenue, proceeding to Lee Circle. From Lee Circle the route is along Carondelet St. to Canal Street, then back down St. Charles, again past Lee Circle, and back to the starting point. Since it is public transportation, one may board or depart at any stop, approximately every two blocks. The fare is about $1.50.
Along St. Charles Avenue, riders pass Audubon Park (which includes the Audubon Zoo), Tulane University and Loyola University. St. Charles Avenue is one of the City’s oldest residential neighborhoods, and it passes through the famous Garden District. Along the route, one is just two blocks from world famous Garden District restaurant, Commander’s Palace.
At Lee circle, riders are just a few blocks from the new D-Day Museum, the Confederate Museum, and the Arts District. The Trolley travels for two blocks on Canal Street, the beginning of the French Quarter.
A must do for any visitor to the Historic city of New Orleans.
