High Level Bridge Streetcar
Take a ride into Edmonton’s past. The history of streetcars in Edmonton dates back to the very first streetcar ride in November 1908. The Edmonton Radial Railway (as it was known) became famous throughout North America because of the unique streetcar ride over the North Saskatchewan River, the highest river crossing by streetcar in the world.
Over the years, the Edmonton Radial Railway Society has restored an impressive collection of streetcars from all over the world. If you’re a streetcar enthusiast, definitely put the streetcar museum in the Streetcar Barn at Strathcona on your list. The displays include many pictures, the history of Edmonton's long gone streetcars, uniforms, tickets, and streetcar parts and models.
The high level streetcar runs daily from the Friday of May long weekend to Labour Day, and on weekends (including holiday Mondays) from Labour Day to Thanksgiving.
