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.

Great for kids and adults!

Great for getting across the river from downtown to any festivals or shopping on Whyte. So great to be able to ride on a piece of history. You can beat the price either!

Great little touch of charm in downtown Edmonton! I love how the conductors wear uniforms and act in role. For $5 round-trip, on par with ETS public transportation prices.

Went on this for a team event at work. The ride from downtown to Strathcona was just average - nothing special. On the way back, the operator provided commentary and history at various points on the route which was both fun and informative. It would have been fun if the conductor on the way there did the same thing.

This was the last attraction we did while in Edmonton and it was one of my favorite of the whole trip. We boarded the street car for the last ride of the day behind the Strathcona Farmers Market. Initially finding it was difficult but after we rode it we saw signs everywhere for it. The staff were very friendly and... More

Relaxing, with a little thrill, family adventure! We boarded the train on its first trip on a Sunday breezy morning. Paid $15 roundtrip for a family of 4. Staff are great! The conductor shared a little bit of the streetcar's history during the first half of the ride. And the view on the bridge, awesome! Everybody had a great time...... More

The streetcar only runs on weekends. The streetcar is beautifully restored. However the ride is a little scary - if you are afraid of heights, don't go. Saturday morning is the best time to take it to the end at the Strathcona Farmer's market where you will find wonderful produce, arts and crafts. Another good time to take it is... More

friendly conductor, pointed out highlights along the way and the history great view of the Alberta capitol and the river. About a 45 minute roundtrip. Could have stayed at one end and explored but we were pressed for time. They have four restored streetcars, this one was from Melbourne, which ironically we visited in March and they had their own...

The streetcar staff were great but lets be clear, 2 hours on a streetcar to go 4 kilometer with screaming kids is not my idea of a good time. Bamboo under the fingernails is better.
