Getting to your places
Buses, Streetcars and beyond
New Orleans offers world-class and unique methods of transportation, from historic streetcars to new bike lanes. Regional Transit Authority , the body overseeing our historic streetcars and buses, helps visitors and locals get around town.
- Text Your Stop ID - Find out when the next streetcar or bus arrives at your stop by texting RTA. Just text your Stop ID to 27299, and find out when the next bus or streetcar is scheduled to arrive at that stop.
- Jazzy Pass - Get a 1-Day, 3-Day or 31-Day Jazzy Pass, available across the city for purchase, and hop on and off any streetcar or bus for the duration of the pass.
- Bike and Ride - With temperate weather much of the year, use buses equipped with two bike racks and combine transportation methods.
2) Ride in the bike lane.
3) Look both ways...even on a one way.
4) Watch for potholes and sewer parts that come out of the road.
5) If you are going to ride drunk, please don't run the red lights....not sop much that you will get a ticket, but more like you will be a statistic...one dead not even in the attic. The roads are bad enough as it is...don't make them bumpier with your brain parts.
6) Make a mark on it....bikes are stolen here....it appears to be big business....so register your bike with the city and lock it up tight and secure all the time.
7) Cycling can be fun....most of the city is flat as a pancake, crispy on the edges. As such, know that it is illegal to ride on the sidewalk, up a one way, or ride like a bozo through the French Quarter...you will be ticketed by the police.
8) Keep a helmet on...(for points 1-7).
9) Put lights on the front and back of your bike...as a minimum.
10) Know your route when you bike late at night...try to ride with others or on well lit streets. Avoid the scary monstors.
