Owner description: Open May Long weekend to October each year, the streetcar's views of the city and the river are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

“A street car named beautiful”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

During the Fringe, we travelled from downtown to the Fringe. What a beautiful view of the city when we crossed the high level bridge. We did a round trip and had a different car each way. Beautifully restored and run by volunteers. We are going to make this an annual event.

“Great fun”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a really neat thing to do in the summer, beautiful views. Try to go when it's not a holiday as it can be very busy and packed so you don't get the best experience. The conductors and drivers are excellent and full of interesting information.

“High Anxiety!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is the highest streetcar still running in the world! The cars have been lovingly restored and the trip across the High Level Bridge an eye-opener.

“Great view”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The ride isn't long, but it does offer spectacular views of Edmonton's sky line (downtown) and U of A as well as taking you into the heart of Old Strathcona. For anyone who is interested in streetcar history it's worth the trip. Talk to the operators and learn more.

“WATERFALL”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Over hyped. They have a waterfall off the bridge, but if it is windy it blows away. GIMMICKY. The street car across the bridge is somewhat cool if you are going from downtown to Whyte avenue for some bar hopping and shopping.
