The Como-Harriet Streetcar Line

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.

PCC Car No. 322 at Lake Harriet

PCC Car No. 322 crosses 42nd Street with Lake Harriet in the background. Minneapolis' Chain of Lakes is the region's second most popular attraction after only the Mall of America. To learn more about No. 322, 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 click here to visit the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board's website.

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.
