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.

This was one of my favourite parts of Edmonton! And it's not overly pricey at all! 5 bucks per person. It's a charm! As many have stated, it's like travelling back in time! An older gentleman recited information as we travelled and asked us a lot about my significant other's parents (they were visiting from Russia). He seemed to genuinely... More

Short ride but a fun way to get from Old Strathcona to downtown. The conductor/engineer gave us a lot of historical information and best of all it was only $5!

It is a different way to travel between Jasper Avenue and Whyte Avenue. You could explore the city market by Jasper Avenue and 104 Street on a Saturday morning, hop on the streetcar, get off by the Strathcona farmer's market, explore Whyte Avenue and then head back in a couple of hours (or go the other direction if you are...

Every trip should have one purely fun impulse thing and this was very inexpensive and fun way to scratch that particular itch. The early 1900s vintage streetcar has been lovingly refurbished--including period advertising cards--and runs from just west of downtown, past the Legislature and over the High Level Bridge to the Strathcona area of the city. The view is amazing... More

We were surprised to see a tram from Melbourne Australia used here. Being Australians it was like being back home. The street car is run by Volunteers and the cost is minimal. The view from the bridge is excellent. On the day we took the ride there was a group of young school kids on a trip. When they found... More

Historic refurbished streetcars. Volunteer conductors and drivers with lots of information and enthusiasm. A track across the top of the high level bridge where you are afforded a great view up and down the river. All for only $5 roundtrip. If you are interested in streetcars or trains then you will really enjoy this ride. Even if you aren't it... More

Ever since it got stuck on the top of the high level bridge for two hours this has been a no-go for my family and I. Too scary. It is a lovely view though in the fall and a great shortcut to get across the river if you are willing to take that risk though!

Enjoy the ride from Old Strathcona to downtown Edmonton. Ran by volunteers, it is a great way to learn about the history of the city. The only downside is that it can be a little difficult to hear all the information because it can get noisy in the street car. I strongly recommend it nonetheless, it is nice to have... More

Our little 3 year old loved it! And she was free. It's only about 20 minutes trip one way but worth the 5 bucks for a return trip.
