Transportation Information

To and From the New Orleans Airports 

Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is an award-winning airport that serves 5 to 15 million passengers per year. It’s the first stop on your visit to New Orleans, a warm welcome to a city like none other. The New Orleans Airport (MSY) provides a glimpse into the culture of the city due to the large number of local businesses, including restaurants and shops, inside the main terminal.

Bus Services

Service to Downtown New Orleans from the airport is available via the Jefferson Transit Authority (JET) and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA). Bus service is available from Level 1 Baggage Claim outside Door 2, Zones B4 and B5.

Hop the RTA’s 202 Airport Express, which travels from the airport terminals to Elk Place at Canal Street in downtown New Orleans. The fare is $1.50 and the bus makes 9 daily trips to New Orleans. For more information, you can visit the New Orleans RTA website here.

Ground Transportation in New Orleans 

New Orleans’s streetcar lines have been a staple of public transportation in the city for centuries – more specifically, the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line began toting passengers in 1835, making it the world’s oldest continually operating streetcar line. Nowadays, the iconic brown and green or red and yellow carts follow tracks across the city. Plan more of your streetcar-based exploration using our streetcar itinerary, which breaks everything down by route. 

Along with the streetcar, The Regional Transit Authority (RTA) runs 30 bus lines in the city. With their handyTrip Planner you can find what routes to take to get to your destination. Or download Le Pass for the most efficient and seamless transit experience. The app puts real-time transit tracking, trip planning tools, and mobile payment options right at your fingertips.
