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

Despite quite a few years living in Edmonton I never took the time to ride the High Level Street Car, until just recently. I boarded on the Jasper stop for the street car which is in quite a secluded area that can be a challenge to find if you're unsure of the area, so I recommend researching it's location first... More

The ride was spectacular and exhilarating. It was a nice feeling crossing the North Saskatchewan river from a high bridge. One does not see many of such streetcars in the world anymore.

a short but interesting ride on the Australian street car across the river to Strathcona where some of the buildings reminded me of the wooden buildings in old cowboy movies.if you go there visit the thousand villages shop for presents or a treat for yourself.it is run by volunteers-good work boys.

This ride featured the way it was in early 1900's crossing the North Saskatchewan river. Stories and facts given by the conductor. See the difference on the return ride.

I took the High Level Street car from downtown Edmonton to Old Strathcona. What an amazing way to see the city, especially over the bridge. The volunteers that run and conduct the car are exceptionally friendly and outgoing, they really go out of their way to give you the best experience possible. It's a $5 ticket, round trip, with convenient... More

The high level street car is usually an old restored street car circa 1924, but sometimes is substituted with other rolling stock. This is a very great historic journey with the cars all fully restored by the same group that runs them at Fort Edmonton. The two highlights are the old railroad tunnel that goes under 109 street and the... More

Great little streetcar across the river which gives amazing views. The volunteers love their roles and make the experience really interesting. Recommend catching from the legislator side to Whyte Ave; having a look around and then taking the trip back.

It's a great way to see the City! We found out on Canada Day that you could ride for free as it was being sponsored by a local community club to celebrate the holiday. Just a different experience and a nice way to spend a summer afternoon. It was best to leave from the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market as you... More

We too the street car from the Whyte Ave. side to the legislature grounds. The conductor shared interesting information on the history of Edmonton and the street cars. We got off at the legislature grounds and enjoyed the beautiful gardens there, then took the street car back to Whyte Ave. It's a short ride, and fun for all.
