Buses and Streetcars

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.

Taxicabs and For Hire Vehicles

Taxicab and For Hire Bureau - New Orleans proudly offers citizens and visitors safe, convenient, and customer service-oriented taxicabs and for hire vehicles to travel around Orleans Parish, as well as to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport and other transportation hubs.
