Historic TTC streetcars to take part in Easter parade
March 28, 2013
Two of the TTC's most popular streetcars from the past will be on the streetcar tracks for the annual Toronto Beaches Lions Easter Parade, which takes place this Sunday, March 31 beginning at 2 p.m.
The parade runs along Queen Street East from Neville Loop to Woodbine Avenue.
The Peter Witt streetcar served the citizens of Toronto from 1921 until 1963. The PCC streetcar was the backbone of the TTC's surface fleet from 1938 until 1995. At one time, Toronto owned the largest fleet of PCCs in the world - 745 cars.
During the parade, the 501 Queen streetcar will turn back at Kingston Road starting at 1 p.m. The 64 Main and 92 Woodbine South will also be on diversion for the duration of the parade.
Enjoy the holiday weekend with a TTC Family/Group Pass. For $10.75 a day, a TTC Family/Group pass provides unlimited one day travel for a group of up to six people, maximum two adults and not more than four children/youths 19 years of age or under. The pass is valid from the start of service until 5:30 a.m. the next morning.
