started serving passengers today


TTC LRV 4403 turns from southbound Spadina onto eastbound Queen’s Quay, in service on 510 SPADINA while CLRV 4038 waits to head northbound. This shot was taken on the morning of Wednesday, October 15, 2014 by James Bow.

The TTC has announced that its eighth Bombardier Flexity low-floor streetcar started regular service to passengers during afternoon rush hours today, Tuesday, August 11.

The new streetcar, #4409, started dropping off or picking up passengers along the 509 Harbourfront and 510 Spadina routes this afternoon.

The new car includes PRESTO fare-card machines and ticket validators to let passengers use the cards to pay their fares. The machines also allow passengers without a card to buy a single-ride proof-of-payment ticket with coins or tokens.

With the “POP”, or proof-of-payment, system, passengers with a transfer, a valid TTC pass or another proof of payment may board streetcars at any door at any time. Both 509 Harbourfront and 510 Spadina are POP routes..
