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.

It is a great ride that takes you to and from Downtown/Old Strathcona across the High Level Bridge. It only runs during the summer. It is great for couples, families, etc. And it is a fun way to get between these two areas of the city.

Takes you across the High level Bridge. It is a great ride and does go both ways. It is definitely something to try during the summer - the only time it runs.

My son (10yrs) and I thoroughly enjoyed our little jaunt on the 1947 Australian streetcar. I wish I had checked Trip Advisor first for advice on parking before heading out. The Jasper stop was closest to us so we headed there (plus we've already visited the Old Strathcona Market). Parking was very close by, however, it was $12 for 2... More

I always enjoy going on the streetcar during the Fringe. Some years back, they even allowed my family pet on board. This is a yearly event for me. I have gone with both family and friends and solo. Children absolutely love this experience. Complete with costumed volunteer's.

I have been on the streetcar many times and it is always fun. Only 5 dollars for a return trip and has great views.

Whether you live in Edmonton or are visiting this tourist attraction is a must. It is an inexpensive ticket to yesteryear. Operated by dedicated volunteers ready to answer all your questions. The high lite is stopping on top of the High Level Bridge and having the spectacular vista of the River Valley literally at your feet.

We took our Montessori Kindergarten children on this streetcar and boy did they have fun. So did the teachers and parents that came with us to supervise.

Took a round trip ride on the trolley over the high level bridge. Friendly volunteers provide a really interesting history of the trains, trolley and the bridge. Great shopping and restaurants on both sides of the river. And the newly renovated Alberta Legislature and Visitors Center are impressive and informative. Well worth the small fee it costs to ride.

It is a major route that connects the south with the north part of Edmonton. It is an old bridge and well travelled, It is a very narrow bridge so don't text. lol.
