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.

Very nice way to see almost the entire city. Cheap and easy to go. If you want to take better shots, cross the bridge by foot.

“nice little trip”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

hubby and i took this train on the weekend..it was a fun short ride across the high level bridge. the kids on board loved it when we went into the tunnel....the only thing missing was commentary...I saw the conductor at the back say a few words, but couldn't hear them. i wanted to hear about the history....maybe the speakers weren't working..anyhow, its a fun little excursion for families.

“Time travel”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

A fun thing to do in Edmonton in the summer is to ride a fully restored streetcar over the Highlevel Bridge. The guides are very informative and the scenery beautiful. Perfect for taking visitors to the city, family or children. A very pleasant experience!

“Enjoyable experience”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

You can catch the high level street car near the provincial legislature. It is a totally volunteer run service. The two men could not have been nicer. You could tell they loved what they were doing. There is a commentary as you go. You get a great view as you go across the bridge because there are no obstructions. It even goes through a short tunnel. Great for the kids. The street car is maintained perfectly. Everything shines. Whyte Ave. is just a short distance from the last stop. There are shops and lots of places to have a meal.

“Fun and family friendly”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Good price for what is offered. We loved the talk that the conductor did on the way across the bridge to downtown, and the on/off options on our two way ticket. The streetcar is gorgeous and really well refurbished. I love the old adds on the sides above the seats. Fabulous views as you cross the river! Would have loved a bit more history on the way back but other than that it was a great way to start and end our day being tourists in our own home town. XO
