Scene: A Vintage Streetcar Says Thank You

This past weekend, riders were treated to free trips on one of the TTC's older vehicles.

WHERE: Between Woodbine and Bingham Loops

WHEN: March 30, 2014

WHAT: People enjoying free rides on a vintage Presidents Conference Committee (PCC) streetcar. Last year, east-end transit routines were disrupted for six months while streetcar tracks were rebuilt along Kingston Road. On Sunday, the TTC offered complimentary rides on a classic TTC vehicle to thank residents and local businesses for their patience.

PCCs were a common sight on the street of Toronto from 1938 to 1995. At one point, the city was home to the largest fleet of PCCs in the world—745 cars.
