The Ferry is a great way to get to Algiers Point or just take a leisurely ride on the Mississippi River. The Algiers Ferry leaves every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour.

Cab vs. Streetcar vs. Uber

March 3, 2017

There is no need for a car in New Orleans unless you plan on doing some heavy day trips outside of the city or want to try some restaurants in our Suburbs.

If you do not bring a car, then you have many options to get around in this city. My two favorite options are Streetcar and Cab.

Obtaining a Streetcar Pass:
Before you hop on the streetcar, have exact change in hand ready to feed the machine. A standard pass costs $1.25 for people between the ages 2 and 64. Transfers are .40 cents. For riders 65 and older (with ID) the pass will only cost you .40 cents and transfers are free.

If you plan on getting on and off the streetcar buy a Jazzy Pass. Its $3 and no additional transfer tickets are needed.

You are now ready to board the streetcar, get your pass and take a seat.

We all know how cabs work – You yell or waive for a cab, hop in and pray that at the end of your ride your not paying and arm and a leg.

Our cab prices work like this:
$3.50 when your butt hits the seat. Then $2.40 per mile or 25ยข for every 40 seconds of waiting time when cab is not rolling (stuck in traffic). $32.00 per hour chartered (within New Orleans city limits) with a minimum of 2 hours.

Uber has so many categories on type of car and route information that I’ll just give you the h1. link here


Getting to and from the Airport

March 3, 2017

If you are travelling alone, the airport shuttle (provided by the Airport) is cheaper. The price is $20.00 per passenger one way and $38 round trip. The only drawback is stopping at every hotel your fellow passengers are going to. It can either be a drag or a free tour. Just depends on how you look at it.

If your are travelling with 2 or more people, take a cab to or from the airport. It’s only $33.00. 3 or more passengers is only $14.00 per passenger.
