TTC streetcars to take part in Easter parade
March 24, 2016
The TTC’s streetcar fleet, vintage and modern, will join the annual Toronto Beaches Lions Easter Parade this Sun., March 27, at 2 p.m.
The parade runs along Queen Street East from Munro Park to Woodbine Avenue.
Toronto’s new low-floor, air-conditioned streetcar will be accompanied by a refurbished ALRV and a CLRV streetcar. These cars join the vintage Peter Witt streetcar, which served the citizens of Toronto from 1921 until 1963, and the PCC streetcar that was the backbone of the TTC's streetcar fleet from 1938 until 1995.
Sixteen of the new accessible streetcars are now in service on the 510 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront routes.
During the parade, the 501 Queen streetcar route will turn back at Kingston Road starting at 1 p.m. The 64 Main and 92 Woodbine South buses will also be on diversion for the duration of the parade. See ttc.ca for more details.
Regular service will resume at 5 p.m.
