Using Public Transit to Get to Longue Vue from the French Quarter

If you are near the river, take the Riverfront Streetcar to Canal Street.  If not, walk to Canal Street.  From Canal Street, catch the Canal Streetcar towards the cemetery.  Get off at the cemetery.  This portion of the trip is on the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority.

From the cemetery, you can walk to Longue Vue.  It's about a mile.  When you get off the streetcar, walk to the left towards the expressway overpass.  You'll walk under the overpass.  Please be careful, as this area is not pedestrian friendly.  Keep going.  You will be walking along a cemetery on your right.  The first left after the cemetery ends is Bamboo Road.  Turn left.  Longue Vue is about half way down the road on the left.  

Alternately, you can catch the bus from the cemetery at Canal Street and City Park Avenue.  You'll be using a Jefferson Parish Transit bus.  Get off at Bamboo Road and walk up the road to Longue Vue.
