They are a great way to see the city with three different lines: St. Charles, Canal Street, and the Riverfront, each of which originates downtown but takes you different parts of the city. One-way fares are $1.25 and can be paid with exact change when you board. One, 3 and 5-day unlimited ride passes are also available for $5, $12 and $20 respectively. (These fares are subject to change.) If you prefer to take a cab, most journeys by cab very affordable.
