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 displays in our station, shop our unique gifts and souvenirs, 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. Learn more about the ride on our FAQ page.

Como-Harriet Streetcar Line

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 and performances 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.

You can also eat, drink, and shop in “downtown” Linden Hills – a neighborhood created by the streetcar. Just two blocks from the Linden Hills Station, you’ll find interesting shops including Creative Kidstuff, Heartfelt and Wild Rumpus Books, plus refreshments at Great Harvest Bakery, Sebastian Joe’s ice cream, and Coffee & Tea, Ltd. Or sample one of the many fine dining restaurants.

Ride a streetcar ride and spend the day at the lake.
