Move Downtown and ditch the commute. One of the most walkable areas in the entire Crescent City, Downtown residents leave their cars in the garage and get to work on foot or bicycle. And with the revitalized RTA providing ever expanding services by both bus and our historic streetcars, you can cut down what you spend at the pump, keep our city a little greener, and eliminate that hour commute in the morning. Use the tools on the left to help you plan your trip, park your car, or navigate to your next destination.
