Transit Toronto Streetcar Pages

Feature Photograph


The sun sets on TTC air-electric PCC at Polson Quay on July 22, 1968. After many years of service, the car has been declared surplus, and is awaiting delivery to its final destination, serving passengers in the street railways of Alexandria, Egypt. This photograph was taken by Robert McMann and is courtesy the John F. Bromley collection.

We continue to gather more photographs of streetcars past, present and future. The Flexity LRVs continue to be slow to arrive, but the pace promises to pick up next month, and the TTC is also embarking on a rebuilding program for the CLRVs and ALRVs that may actually expand the capacity of the streetcar network for the first time in years. On March 23, 2016, TTC commissioners approved the launch of the 514 CHERRY streetcar, launching June 19, 2016, serving Liberty Village, the Distillery District and points in between. A page on this new route has been uploaded to the site, and look for a history page about the DAVENPORT streetcar to follow in the coming days.

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to Transit Toronto, whether it be with articles or photographs, maps or track diagrams, feedback or criticism. This site wouldn’t be what it is without the efforts of dedicated transit enthusiasts like yourself. We are grateful for all the support, and we look forward to the future.
