New Orleans streetcars

The St. Charles Avenue streetcar line has operated in New Orleans since 1835, making it the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world. Since 1923, the arch-roofed, steel-bodied and iconic green Perley Thomas streetcars have operated on the line’s tracks.

Now the line is designated as a National Historic Landmark. Rumbling up and down the “neutral ground” under a vast canopy of oak trees and alongside majestic homes of uptown New Orleans and the hustling streets of the CBD, the streetcars form a 13.2-mile line that’s become an enduring symbol of charm in our city.
