The views of the city and the river from this trolley car are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

The street car picks you up at the Farmer's market and takes you back in time as you travel across the highlevel bridge and back. The conductors share a wealth of trivia about Edmonton through the century. The view from the bridge is fantastic and even people with a fear of hights will find it safe and breathtaking in a...

With only 2 days in Edmonton visiting family we decided to take the High level bridge and streetcar as the one and only tourist attraction. The volunteers do a wonderful job in explaining the history of the streetcar in Edmonton. Riding the classic and beautifully renovated streetcar amongst the backdrop of spring time green trees, blossoming shrubs and a clear... More

It was a real adventure. It was like a trip back in time. The presenter told us all the history of the Street Car. Also a lot of Edmonton History also. The view was out of this world. There is a lot of time to take great pictures. You can get off the train to walk to the Farmer Market... More

The Streetcar goes from the Fringe site - across the top of the high level bridge to the north end at the Legislature. It was a fabulous trip though it was a bit spooky when the driver stopped in the middle. A must experience when you come to Edmonton!

The view is quite good, and it is slightly scary, although it is perfectly safe. It's just a pleasant, fun thing to do. After you get off, you can walk over to the Legislative Grounds and enjoy the garden, or go inside and see the historic Legislative Assemblt building.

Won't forget the look on my little girl as the street car rode over High Level Bridge. She was 1.5 years old and loved it! And so did I. It was the very last ride of 2014, and we will sure be back! Takes no more than 20 minutes round trip, you just sit, relax and enjoy the views! Pure... More

Don't miss a trip back in time on the streetcar. A lovely view of the city and the river. We always take one or two trips every summer.

Take a ride over the old railway bridge in a antique streetcar(Tram) high over the Saskatchewan river allowing a great view of the river valley.

One of the best-kept secrets for delving into the past. A lovely way of seeing the city from a different angle with all the historical trappings. Definitely worth doing during the spring, summer and fall.
