7. Next-Generation Streetcars

  • The TTC had 57 new low-floor streetcars in revenue service in 2017.
  • The TTC’s first, low-floor streetcar, a prototype test vehicle, arrived in Toronto by rail at CP’s Lambdon Yard from Bombardier Transportation in Thunder Bay on September 25, 2012. Car No. 4400 was loaded on to a tractor/trailer flatbed and delivered to the TTC’s Hillcrest Complex on September 29, 2012.
  • Officials from all three orders of government attended an official reveal of car #4400 at TTC’s Harvey Shop on November 15, 2012.
  • Car #4400 was the first of three test vehicles that were used for extensive vehicle reliability, performance and technology verification testing in 2013. System compatibility tests included: accessibility features, platform- and on-street boarding interface with the vehicle, noise and vibration, fare card system and overhead power interface.
  • Delivery of all 204 low-floor streetcars from Bombardier Transportation is scheduled for completion in 2019. These vehicles will replace the aging fleet of CLRVs and ALRVs, and provide for ridership growth and congestion relief efforts.
  • The new vehicles are just over 30 metres long. They have four doors, 70 fixed seats and six flip-down seats. They have many user friendly features, including: air conditioning, large windows, airy interior design, interior bike racks and a PRESTO fare card system.
  • The TTC entered into a contract with Bombardier after a competitive procurement process for the design and supply of 204 new, accessible low-floor streetcars in June 2009.
