North Rampart Street/ St. Claude Avenue Streetcar Project
The RTA is continually investing in major projects that improve and expand our service to our customers. Our most anticipated capital projects concern our new streetcar lines.

The expansion of our streetcar network is not just good for our riders. It's also good for the city of New Orleans. Streetcar lines bring significant economic development to the neighborhoods they pass through. Simply put, people enjoy riding the streetcar. New streetcar lines tend to bring increased pedestrian traffic to neighborhoods, new retail shops and other businesses, and new housing units.

The RTA is currently in the process of constructing a new streetcar line:

Funding MapThe 2.6-mile segment will run from Canal Street along Rampart Street (with a spur on Basin Street) along the edge of the French Quarter. The line will run from Elysian Fields Avenue connecting to the Canal Streetcar line and Union Passenger Terminal on Loyola Avenue. Streetcars will run in the left travel lane adjacent to the neutral ground. There will be six streetcar stops along N. Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue.

More than 70,000 residents live in the medium-density neighborhoods adjacent to the French Quarter corridor. Much of the housing in these areas is affordable, and residents who live in these neighborhoods often find employment in the downtown hospitality industry and in businesses located in the CBD. Connecting these workers to the streetcar system will give them better access to the many employment opportunities available in the French Quarter and the CBD. View the N.
