You can take the streetcar outside the farmer's market on strathcona so if you plan your visit you can have breakfast on the market, visit the market, then go to the streetcar and go downtown to visit the legislature building or other attractions like the art gallery and return to strathcona through the streetcar again. it is a really nice...

This little train ride in the middle of the city was like a dream come true for our 7 year old, and we liked it too! We actually took it twice in the same summer and had a different car each time, which was cool too. It's $5 each person, and about 30-40 minutes round trip. You could get off... More

We enjoyed a lovely round trip from downtown Edmonton to the Fringe Festival (in Old Strathcona) by streetcar. My son thought it was pretty cool - it was standing room only in our streetcar. It was a little tricky finding the departing location (hidden a bit off a main street near a parking lot) but eventually we found it. The... More

It was fun. As a lifetime time, Edmonton dweller, I can remember the starting place of this street car on the southside of Edmonton. It is very interesting and informative.

My mom grew up in Edmonton and talked about riding the street cars over the high level bridge. It was interesting but the street car is from Japan, not Edmonton and it didn't seem to really go anywhere. Great idea but needs to be expanded.

Too crowded. Better to walk across and take your time and take your pictures without someone's elbow in the way.

The train ride into the city was "not bad" but the views you get of the city are overrated. First you have to wait for the train as it goes on a set schedule. Gets pretty hot in Edmonton in August and there is no shelter, unless you go in the museum and lose your spot in line. The train... More

It is brilliant, it's a fun way of seeing what transportation was like in the early 1900s and it's a most impressive way of sightseeing between downtown Edmonton and Old Scrathcona

Very nice way to see almost the entire city. Cheap and easy to go. If you want to take better shots, cross the bridge by foot.

hubby and i took this train on the weekend..it was a fun short ride across the high level bridge. the kids on board loved it when we went into the tunnel....the only thing missing was commentary...I saw the conductor at the back say a few words, but couldn't hear them. i wanted to hear about the history....maybe the speakers weren't...
