“The only way to travel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

This is a fun way to travel between downtown Edmonton & the colourful Old Strathcona district of the city. I rode in the old Edmonton streetcar, which was quite lovely. As well, the conductor was knowledgable about the car, as well as the route we were riding. If you get the chance, take a ride!

“Great date!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Took my honey to the farmer's market on whyte and back on the Streetcar - we loved it! It's nice to see the river without the high level's structure blocking your view (from in a car) and going slower than the LRT.
Only cost $5 for a round trip ($3 for one-way).
Also learned you can charter the streetcar and have photos taken mid-bridge (it stops for you)!

“Great ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Beautiful view of the City, you can see the sunset from the high level bridge and on the way back (if you return when it is dark) the view of the Legislature Building is amazing!

The volunteers on the streetcar (staff) are very nice.

Where to board teh STREETCAR (I got this info below from their website):

South Terminus (Old Strathcona)
Gateway Boulevard (103 Street) at 84 Avenue
(2 blocks north of Whyte Avenue at north end of Strathcona Farmer's Market)
Parking on east and west side of Gateway Boulevard (103 Street) across from the Strathcona Terminus (parking ticket must be purchased)


North Terminus (Jasper Plaza)
Jasper Plaza north of 100 Avenue and between 109 Street & 110 Street
(1/2 block south of Jasper Avenue)
Parking on west side of 109 Street between Jasper Avenue and 100 Avenue (parking ticket must be purchased)

Intermediate Stops
■Level crossing at 107 Street
■Garneau (south end of High Level Bridge)
■Grandin (LRT station)

the cost is $ 3 dlls one way or $ 5 dlls return

“A taste of the 1900s!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

This experience has it all! The sights, sounds, and even smells of the 1900s! I'd recommend it if you haven't done it before! Some of the best views of the city can be seen from on top of the high level bridge!

Best of all, your visit helps maintain this historic part of downtown Edmonton!
