If you are looking for a fun way to get from downtown to Old Strathcona in the summer, look no farther. For $3.00, you can take a vintage streetcar over the high level bridge and get some of the best views in Edmonton.

The tour isn't that long, but it's nice to get out and cross the bridge in the old streetcar. The tour could be a bit longer or provide more information.

This is brilliant. The view is unmatched. Take the kids; they'll love it. (Hint: Park downtown, take the LRT to the Grandin Station, take the Street Car to Old Strathcona, spend a few hours on Whyte Ave and Return the same way)

The little streetcar carried us over the high-level bridge and into the heart of Old Strathcona where we checked out the farmer's market and Whyte Ave. Nice to sit back and relax without feeling rushed, unlike the lrt and buses

An interesting step back in time with a wonderful view. A nice outing to take the streetcar down on a Saturday and take in the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market. Very enjoyable and affordable. Also a nice way to spend part of a day with visiting family or friends.

This Streetcar is run by volunteers that are railroad hobbyists, so you will get some very good history of the train and the route, If you are going to any of the festivals in Old Strathcona like the Fringe or the Street Performers festival this is a very direct route to get there and easy parking

From the knowledgeable volunteer staff, you will learn much about cable cars, and some great history of Edmonton - namely the massive high level bridge! There is something humbling about being on a such a high man made structure - and stopping right in the middle! It is worth the small price of admission!

I rode the Streetcar during the Fringe Festival in August with my 10 year old grandson. We really enjoyed it, and also enjoyed a min fringe show on board, sort of a ghost story telling with music, a guy and a girl did the show. Looking forward to next summer to do it again!
