The Steveston Tram Museum

Featuring Tram Car 1220, one of the original trams that ran on Richmond’s interurban rail system. Today, the beautifully restored tramcar and the building that houses it, allow visitors to experience authentic interurban rail travel and learn about early 20th century transportation.

Designed to house Tram Car 1220, the museum was built around the original tracks of the BC Electric Railway Interurban Network across the street from where the Steveston Station once stood. You can still spot the original railroad path and power poles around the tram today.

Leaf season is here

Please ensure all leaves and trimmings are placed securely into your green cart, paper yard waste bags or in your store bought 80L Green Cans. For Green Can Decals please call 604-276-4010 or e-mail
