Vintage and current TTC streetcars set to roll in Easter parade
March 29, 2018
TTC vehicles, vintage and modern, will once again join the annual Toronto Beaches Easter Parade this Sun., Apr. 1 at 2 p.m.
The parade runs along Queen St. E. from Munro Park Ave. to Woodbine Ave.
One of the TTC’s new accessible streetcars will join a refurbished CLRV streetcar, along with the historic Peter Witt streetcar, which served Toronto residents from 1921 until 1963, and the classic PCC streetcar that was the backbone of the TTC’s streetcar fleet for several decades starting in 1938. The final PCC was retired from service in 1995.
During the parade, the 501 Queen streetcar route will turn back at Kingston Rd. starting at 1 p.m. The 64 Main and 92 Woodbine South buses offer service nearest the parade route, but will also be on diversion for the duration. Visit ttc.ca for more details.
Regular service resumes when the parade ends at approximately 5 p.m.
