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.
Reviewed 28 June 2018

Being a bit of a train/streetcar buff, this ride was outstanding. Goes over the highlevel bridge and is very scenic. Great for the kids. Be sure to check schedule because the last train is late afternoon. Operated by volunteers who are very helpful.

We rode from the Jasper station and got off at the other end to visit the shops & have lunch along Whyte Avenue then took the return trip. The old streetcar was cool and the view of the river was lovely. Our conductor told us about the history of the streetcars and the area. I’d recommend this on your visit to Edmonton.

Ride it during the first few hours when it starts up to avoid the large crowds. It's exciting when you go over the river.

We stumbled across the streetcar during the fringe last year. I never knew where it started before so I was glad we found it. We went on in the evening and had a nice time going back and forth across the river. The gentlemen giving information on the streetcar history were great, enjoyable and very knowledgeable. The view was great and just love taking a step back in time.

Try and board at either the jasper ave terminus or old Strathcona one so that the staff will give you a bit of a history tour of the trolley.
The conductor narrated the trip as we went but it was impossible to hear him with the rattling of the car. It would have been great to understand.
