TTC to operate heritage PCC streetcar
Sundays this summer

A PCC (Presidents’ Conference Committee) streetcar — with paying passengers — will again regularly roll along the streets of Toronto this summer.

The TTC intends to operate a heritage PCC car along the 509 Harbourfront route every Sunday this summer between May 10 and September 6. It will operate in regular revenue service along the route from 11:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Arguably the most iconic of Toronto’s streetcars, PCCs faithfully served Torontonians for almost 60 years from 1938 until 1996. The last PCC also operated on Queens Quay West along the former 604 Harbourfront route.

The Transit Toronto streetcar archives contain many articles about the history of the PCC in Toronto.

A parade of A-15 Class rebuilt PCCs heads down Spadina Avenue for the opening ceremonies of the former 604 Harbourfront route on June 22, 1990. These turned out to be the last PCC streetcars regularly operating on the TTC system. You can read James Bow’s account of the opening day here.
