Edmonton

Edmonton is home to a two line LRT and a heritage tramway run by the Edmonton Radial Railway Society. The tramway, opened in 1984, runs between Fort Edmonton Park and in Old Strathcona. In 1996, the streetcar was extended to the Grandin LRT station, where it features a ride over the North Saskatchewan River: the highest river streetcar crossing in the world.

Built in 1978, Edmonton's light rail consists of 18 stations. Of the 23.8 km, 6 km are in subway. An 8 km
southern extension opened in April 2010. A small 3.3 km second line - the Metro Line - going north to the NAIT opened in September 2015, and a 13.1 km 25 station Valley Line (Line 4) began construction in 2016. The Valley Line's first phase will include one subway station, which two more underground stations in Phase 2, bringing the total length of the Valley Line to 27 km. and 28 stops. Phase 1 is expected to open in 2020.

Several more lines and extensions are in the planning stages, totaling five lines. Pretty cool for a city with barely 1 million people, eh?
