Trust Badge
The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority streetcar No. 920 glistens in the afternoon rain of April 24, 2013 on St. Charles Avenue at Common Street in New Orleans. Since 1835, the St. Charles streetcar line has been operating in New Orleans.

At its peak in 1926, there were twenty-six streetcar lines in New Orleans. With the 1964 abandonment of the Canal streetcar line, increased public recognition emerged on the importance of preserving the St. Charles streetcar line, the only remaining streetcar line in New Orleans. Citizen support led to the rebirth of the streetcar in New Orleans.
