Visitors to downtown Whitehorse can park and ride the beautifully restored, bright, yellow 1925 Waterfront Trolley. The trolley departs northbound from Rotary Peace Park, across from the S.S. Klondike, and southbound from Spook Creek Station. Passengers are welcome to disembark and re-board along the route at the various stations. This interpretive ride describes the Whitehorse waterfront’s fascinating history including the stories about the W.P. & Y.R. line and the mighty stern-wheelers that plied the Yukon River.

We wanted to ride the Waterfront trolley this day anyway and was pleasantly surprised that is was free (Canada Day). Technically, this is a hop on/hop off "trolley" but it only goes in a straight line running on railroad tracks by the Yukon River. Relatively...More

The Waterfront Trolley is a fun ride along the Yukon River. The Trolley runs on a narrow guage track and offers a great view of the river and some very nice buildings. Fun for the whole family.

We've taken the trolley several times. Our grandson loves it. We enjoyed the trolley as well. A great way to tour Whitehorse.

it was nice riding back and forth on it, but as per a transportation item - does not seem to have a timetable. The employees in costumes were a fun contribution

a reminder of a bygone era. The staff are dressed in period costume and regaled us with stories of the period. The trolley is the perfect way to see the riverfront and being able to hop on and off allows for further exploration.

This is an enjoyable ride back and forth. You can drop off and pick it up again on its next run, but make sure you have the schedule.

Nice little jumper... but would be nice if it moved a hair faster...lol. There needs to be more history on board about it and more talked about over the speaker. Great that this has been restored and is used... always good to see and be...More

We took the trolley ride --low price!!!. However, we were expecting a bit of a tour guide approach were someone would talk about the history of the trolley and of Whitehorse. This would have made the ride more interesting. However, nice for a family activity.
