Cherry streetcar noise issues:
TTC hosts public meeting, November 16



According to recent news reports, squeal from streetcar wheels on the tracks near King Street East and Sumach street is disturbing some nearby residents. The noise is a relative new phenomenon for these residents, as streetcar have only operated along Sumach and Cherry Streets since June.

The TTC is hosting a community meeting this Wednesday, November 16 during which you can discuss your concerns about the issue. TTC staff will talk about their actions to address the issue, recent testing and what they plan to do next.

The meeting takes place from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. in the Cooper Koo Family Cherry Street YMCA Centre, 18 Cherry Street.

You can get there by public transit:

  • Eastbound TTC buses operating along the 121 Fort York - Esplanade route to Front Street East at Cherry Street. Cross Cherry at the signal
  • Eastbound streetcars along the 504 King route to King Street East and Sumach Street. Cross Sumach at the signal to the east side of the street. Walk south two blocks to the YMCA. (Sumach becomes Cherry Street south of Eastern Avenue.)
  • Westbound cars along the 504 King route to King Street East and Sumach Street. Cross King East at the signal to the east side of Sumach. Walk south two blocks to the YMCA. (Sumach becomes Cherry Street south of Eastern Avenue.)
