Welcome to the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line! Step back to the days when the streetcar was king – when Twin Citians went to work, to school, and to play by trolley!
Visit the historic displays in our station, then take a nostalgic ride on one of our historic streetcars along a scenic route between the lakes. Your Motorman will provide interesting information about the car and Minnesota streetcar history. To learn more about the ride, click here.

A visit to the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line
offers more than just a streetcar ride. After your trip
back in time, enjoy the beauty of Lake Harriet, part of
Minneapolis' famed Chain of Lakes. You'll find lakeside
refreshments, picnic grounds, ducks to feed, concerts
of all kinds, boats and canoes for rent, a playground,
the Roberts Bird Sanctuary, the Rose and Rock Gardens,
and a series of bicycle and walking trails. For more information
about all that Minneapolis' parks have to offer, please
here to visit the Minneapolis Park and Recreation
You can also eat, drink, and shop in "downtown" Linden Hills - a neighborhood created by the streetcar. Just one block from the Linden Hills Boulevard stop or two blocks from the Linden Hills Station, you'll find interesting shops including the Bibelot Shop, Creative Kidstuff toys, and Wild Rumpus kids books and plenty to eat and drink including the Great Harvest Bakery, Sebastian Joe's ice cream, and Coffee.
