Sunshine Trolley

Historic Downtown

The Sunshine Trolley is the best way to see Medicine Hat in the summer!

Hop on-board Medicine Hat’s Sunshine Trolley and explore Canada’s sunniest city with a ticket. With your pass, you’ll get one ride around the city to see just a few of the many historic and cultural landmarks. 

The ride starts at the Visitor Information Centre and riders stop just minutes later at the Saamis Tepee. After learning a bit about the landmark and the city’s Indigenous Heritage, take a ride downtown to see all of the city’s locally-owned shops, the Esplanade and much more. Next up is Medalta and the Historic Clay District, a key piece of the area’s history. The final stop before returning to the Visitor Centre is Police Point Park, home to beautiful landscapes and trails.

Each stop will allow riders to get out, see a bit of the area and grab a selfie. Feel free to tag us on any social media platform by using the hashtag #myMHsummer.

We take great care to ensure the Sunshine Trolley is always in tip-top shape. Occasionally we run-into unscheduled maintenance needs. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, your safety is our priority!

Get Onboard

1. Purchase your pass

Adult pass: $10

Children 12 years and under ride free! (Please note children must be accompanied by an adult)

2. Book your seat

Each ticket is good for one loop around the city! To facilitate safe social distancing we have changed our seat booking process.

Booking an individual (single) seat for yourself?

  • Select your seat. Seats are grouped by bench. One bench has room for two seats. When you select your seat, you are automatically assigned a bench with two seats.
  • Pick the seat you want and select "child" for the extra (empty) seat on the bench. Individual passengers get a full bench (two seats) to themselves, yay for extra travel room!

Booking multiple seats for your cohort or family?

  • Seats are grouped by bench. One bench has room for two seats. When you select your seat, you are automatically assigned a bench with two seats. Select your seats as needed.
  • If you have an uneven number of people in your cohort or family, select "child" for the extra (empty) seat on the bench.

3. Pre-book your tours

To reopen safely the Esplanade and Medalta are limiting their capacity and require pre-booking.

  • The Esplanade is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.
  • Starting July 1, Medalta is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
