Toronto Rocket lifting off July 21

If you’ve been waiting to ride a Toronto Rocket, one of the TTC’s spiffy new subway trains, well, this Thursday, July 21 is your day.

The Toronto Star reports that the TTC is operating one of its new trains some time after 10 a.m. Thursday — and that it is picking up passengers!

The TTC’s been testing the trains without passengers for the past several months and will continue to test the other four that it has received from its supplier, Bombardier Limited for the next few months, before placing those trains into active service.
