    New Orleans Transportation

    The streetcar is a great way to get around, and the day pass is a very good deal. A single trip costs $1.25, + 25¢ for a transfer, but you can buy an all-day pass for $3.00. However, if you are a senior, paying per ride is probably cheapest—it is only 40¢ per trip, with free transfers. (You need to show a Medicare card or other ID as proof of...
