New Orleans Local Customs: 179 reviews and 209 photos
New Orleans residents recognize the although their electrified railcars are not unique, and are referred to as trolleys most everywhere else in the world, they are still called "streetcars", not trolleys, in New Orleans. The fact that New Orleans streetcars often have dedicated rail paths, and so aren't always on the street per se, or the fact that they are not really cars, is irrelevant to the proper NOLA jargon for these vehicles. Call them streetcars!
