Jump aboard these retro rail cars for a quick jaunt across a high wire river crossing! Great views of the river valley. Fun for adults and kids. Wonderfully friendly, charming volunteers man the ride and entertain the passengers. A great way to travel from downtown to Whyte Avenue and back again, or hit two Saturday farmers markets in short order.... More

Really nice view on a nice cold day - very knowledgeable, interesting conductors who were also very friendly. Go on a Saturday so you can go to the Strathcona Farmers market too.

The trip itself was enjoyable allowing us a better view of the river at a slower pace and we were given a pamphlet of the history of the streetcar.The volunteers were very pleasant and the conductor was very helpful making sure those with disabilities had a step and a hand up. He was also willing to share his knowledge when... More

We've taken rides a couple of times in the past summers. A fun family outing. It can be unbearably hot in there so dress accordingly as there's no air conditioning...but it's still an enjoyable outing!

A volunteer group has found a restored several streetcars from the 1920s and now runs them on a short stretch between Old Strathcona in Edmonton to Jasper Street, just on the edge of downtown. The cars have been meticulously restored to their original condition and clatter along an abandoned CP rail line for $5 return trip. The conductors look like... More

The streetcar takes about 20 minutes to get from Whyte Avenue to downtown. Great for the Fringe. It's inexpensive and the staff clearly love what they are doing. The view from the High Level Bridge is fantastic.

We went on a glorious sunny day. The volunteers were so happy to have us and give us historical info on the ride outbound from Old Strathcona. There are wonderful views of the city. The car doesn't fit too many people, so make sure to hold on if you're standing, but it goes quite slow, so you can still take... More

This little train ride in the middle of the city was like a dream come true for our 7 year old, and we liked it too! We actually took it twice in the same summer and had a different car each time, which was cool too. It's $5 each person, and about 30-40 minutes round trip. You could get off... More
