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.

I used the streetcar to get between the Strathcona Farmer's Market and the downtown farmer's market, as I wanted to visit both. I took the earliest train on the way there, and the conductor was full of information and really fun. On the way back, it was more busy, so I don't think he was able to talk as much, so I recommend going early. It's a great view and the streetcars are beautiful.

We did the High Level Streetcar during our stay in Edmonton. We had tried to do it once before back in July 2003, but the trolley's pantograph had broken so we could not do it. This time 10 years later, we made sure we were going to do it. After some very confusing issues with parking, we picked it up at Old Strathcona and rode the entire loop across the bridge to downtown and back. We managed to do it on the Wednesday before the Fringe Festival was scheduled to begin, which there were tents and banners set up in the Old Strathcona district where we picked it up. As for the bridge crossing, you get an amazing view being right on the very top (we had driven over the same bridge 2 days previously and you are right underneath the tracks when you drive over it) and the conductor gave some information about some of the sights along the route. Anyone who likes historic streetcars must do this attraction.

We caught the last car over to Strathcona. We were not charged by the great volunteer because we had no way of getting back. He then spent the entire trip answering all our questions and giving us the history. It was great!

We were lucky to have been able to ride two different streetcars on the same day. Not only are the restorations beautiful, the volunteers are kind and full of knowledge they are passionate about sharing. The cost for tickets we found to be very reasonable.
