All Aboard! is your ticket to discover Richmond’s transportation heritage
Richmond’s transportation past and present rolls into the Steveston Interurban Tram on Saturday, August 19 from noon to 4 p.m. with the All Aboard! event. Explore Tram Car 1220 and the surrounding site filled with guest transportation experts, live music, children’s crafts and activities and more:
• Tour a 1950s BC Electric bus, look at vintage army artillery vehicles and explore modern RCMP police cars in use today
• Discover new bike routes within Richmond with the HUB Cycling Connection while registering your bike with the RCMP
• Hop aboard a trackless train ride (for children of all ages) that will be rolling along in the lacrosse box to the north of the Tram building
• Learn about the many different ways people move around our city from staff from the City of Richmond’s Transportation Department, CN Rail and ProTrans (Canada Line).
Also, if you are curious about how Tram Car 1220 is being restored, take this opportunity to speak with our volunteers about the restoration process.
This family friendly and free event also includes summer grooves with Blue Grass music from The Ear Buds on the front plaza and Jack the Clown creating balloon animals for children.
Please note that access inside Tram Car 1220 may be limited due to on-going restoration.
Check back soon for more details about our upcoming events.
