St Charles Avenue Streetcar information
A buck twenty-five gets you on the St Charles Avenue Streetcar, which plies the oldest continuously operating street railway system in the world. New Orleanians are justifiably proud of this moving monument, which began life as the nation’s second horse-drawn streetcar line, the New Orleans & Carrollton Railroad, in 1835. In 1893 the line was among the first systems to be electrified. Now it is one of the few streetcars in the USA to have survived the automobile era. The fleet of antique cars survived the hurricanes of 2005 and today full service has been restored all the way to South Carrollton Ave.
