Good price for what is offered. We loved the talk that the conductor did on the way across the bridge to downtown, and the on/off options on our two way ticket. The streetcar is gorgeous and really well refurbished. I love the old adds on the sides above the seats. Fabulous views as you cross the river! Would have loved... More

The old street car is very well preserved and the ride across the high level bridge is creates some great views of the river valley. The 2 conductors are very well informed of the area and give a nice history lesson. All this very the very fair price of $5 return.

A short little ride, but a really neat experience. My husband actually rented it out 9 years ago and we got engaged on the street car over the bridge at sunset. Pretty romantic, and especially meaningful to us.

The car itself is restored beautifully. and the view you get from atop the high level bridge, is unmatched. and once you get to the south side of the river, you can go for a nice stroll in old Strathcona. A perfect afternoon, i would... More

Well organized setup, the drivers and conductors very friendly and informative, especially if you show an interest in the Trams. Museum is a bit small but lots of photos in there. Absolutely unique rail experience, a must do when visiting Edmonton. We went 2 days in a row, rode 2 different vehicles, 2nd visit after doing the Market next door... More

Had the opportunity to take this streetcar with my wife, son and teenage granddaughter. The streetcar has been totally renovated and looks absolutely amazing(talk about turning back the clock). The older gentlemen that run the streetcar are a treat to talk to, they have so much information on the history behind Edmonton's rail system. The views are fantastic. The conductor... More

This is a MUST if you are staying in Strathcona. This wonderful piece of history is well worth a visit and the views from the bridge are breathtaking. The lovely driver and conductor on the journey were very well educated in the local history, but what impressed me more, was the passion they had for the local community. They were... More
