Sections of Dundas are now pantograph only, but with all the delays in upgrading the overhead not all of the 505 route is ready for pantograph use. TTC staff will be stationed at Dundas & Broadview to assist with pantograph to trolley pole switching. This operation will continue until Broadview from Gerrard to Danforth is fully converted to a pantograph-friendly design over the next few months.
Yes, it does show how far behind they are in the conversation but at least they are doing it unlike when it was planned to be done when the CLRV's and ALRv's were new. As for switching from Panto to trolley pole as I've been wanting to see this for awhile.Seriously - the streetcar will have to switch from panto to trolley pole at Broadview? How bush league is this organization? So embarrassing.
