Before you start—I have a car. I like driving. I don’t have anything against the streetcar, it’s simply that I never even think about taking public transportation in New Orleans.

I’ve lived in or around New Orleans for many years. I grew up in Covington and spent many holidays across the lake with relatives. The streetcars have always been in my peripheral, but I’ve never thought about riding one. I can’t even use the “I never have cash” as an excuse because there’s an app for that these days.
