    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    The overhead on Dundas is in the process of being converted to allow for pantograph-only operation. As a result, CLRVs cannot be reallocated onto the 505. MTO has nothing to do with this decision.

    There is absolutely no plan to permanently abandon streetcars on Kingston Road.

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Supplementary bus service, not express. These will be trippers that will add a bit of capacity exactly when the line is busiest. Adding more peak period streetcars would mean fewer streetcars for the rest of the network. This would result in other routes being fully replaced by bus. Until...

    Roncesvalles will have a partial reopening in January, storing the LF cars for 512

    TTC: Streetcar Network

In fact, there are more LF's designated to King than originally budgeted due to increased ridership in the corridor. You are correct, however, that widening the headways means...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    This review is taking place internally right now.

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    For the stretch of Leslie south of Lake Shore, I think the biggest issue is the volume of fully-loaded cement and aggregate trucks that are constantly running northbound on top of the tracks from the plants south of Commissioners to access westbound Lake Shore. The southbound is nowhere near...
