Should the TTC put in a new order for more streetcars (60-100) after COVID-19, maybe they will include a different seating rearrangement.

Based on designs of other manufactures and systems I have rode, very little different, even going to 70% low floor for seating arrangement. The seats to the left are used for bike, strollers and accessibility and that not going to change for TTC.

As for ordering, who going to pay for them based on the COVID-19 mess and drop in ridership??? If TTC is already reducing the number of cars in service now, then there is no need for more.

If we are to move to safe spacing down the road, TTC needs is going to need 100 more cars as ridership pickup. Its also a tool for restarting the economy and a good time to order 100 cars.

As for wooded seats, a fair number of systems in Europe only use them, compare what we sit on in NA. They aren't that bad to sit on from my experience as well being cheap, but prefer our seating,

I prefer Stadler arrangement and the only one I saw this way.

4407 is currently testing on 509 and the first day time testing that I know of. Its also the 5th day in a row doing testing and could it be the first to reenter service under 60 day??

4403 still sitting on the service track in the yard.

4408 was delivery to Hillcrest yesterday and be off loaded on Monday.

Currently 4404 hold the title to the longest car off TTC property at 501 days and 578 days out of service.

4407 was out all night as well. It went out about 1 am and heading home on Queen at 6:30 am.

Its the 3rd time it been out in the last few days.

4408 in its early days of inspection and maybe out testing by the weekend.

As for 4403, its on the yard service track for over a week and not in the service bay. It could be waiting parts or BBD how to fix something or TTC needs the space to keep the current fleet going. Its a problem car for sure and the longest to return to service.

4407 has been sitting on the service track for a number of days

4407 has re-enter service on 512 after been here since May 06, 2020 or 49 days. Fastest of any QC cars to enter service under 70 days. It and the 512 cars are operating out of Hillcrest until the Bathurst loop is done. It also has VISION installed in it.

4408 was back out testing yesterday as well and been here May 27 or 27 days. It should enter service faster than 4407
