The St Charles Avenue streetcar line ranks as one of the oldest lines in the United States. Dating back to 1835, the iconic green streetcar passes through several neighborhoods in a 40-minute, 13.2-mile stretch.
Starting in East Carrollton, just after Claiborne Avenue, the Streetcar rolls (slowly) toward the river on South Carrollton Avenue. Hooking a left at the riverbed, heading downstream, it passes through the Audubon, Uptown, Central City, Lower Garden, and Central Business District neighborhoods.
