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.

The streetcar is great in summer! Take it from Old Strathcona to downtown, then walk the few blocks to City Market! It is also available for charter - rent by the hour for a romantic experience!!

This is a great thing to do in the fall, the color change in the leaves in the valley is beautiful. The volunteers with the Radial Rail Society are awesome, give some great history about the street car, the bridge, and the rail system in the past.

A trip on this old railcar provides some of Edmonton's transportation history and a good view from the bridge.

Just a street car over a river. Really nothing special. Little bit of history to learn which was cool, but other than that, I was underwhelmed.

The trek from downtown Edmonton to the farmer's market in Old Strathcona on the streetcar has some wonderful scenery and, beautiful history. You may need a rest after walking the river valley trails, head on over to the streetcar to get you across the river. Nothing like a river valley picture from on top of the high level bridge with...

I had a friend visiting from Nova Scotia and was fortunate enough to show her the Edmonton, Alberta area. Personally never taking the streetcar I was delighted to see not only the amazing condition of a rare 1880's vehicle but to find it went through a tunnel in the heart of the city. The exceptional view of the North Saskatchewan... More

I've taken the streetcar a few times and it's always been on time and enjoyable. It's a great easy way to get from downtown to Old Strathcona, and the conductors are always very friendly.

The train ride on high level bridge is a good time pass for a sunny summer day or a beautiful fall day where you can see lots of beautiful scenarios from the top of the bridge. the ride is not very long, takes less than an hour. But I would not recommend it on a winter day!

We road this delightful piece of history from Old Strathcona over the river to downtown and back. The views are wonderful, the experience like none other. The volunteers that run and maintain the old streetcars are a wealth of information. Special because my Mom used these to get to work and back home when she first came to Edmonton!! Great... More
