The car took us through old S=tatcona and over the high level bridge. View was excellent and it was a great experience we will do it again.

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!

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
