The Toronto Transit Commission is holding an open house at its Harvey and Duncan Shops, located at the TTC’s Hillcrest facility, 1138 Bathurst St., on Saturday, September 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All proceeds from the open house will go to the United Way. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children.

Established in 1923, Harvey Shop is the major maintenance facility for the streetcar fleet, and component manufacturer for subway cars and buses. Duncan Shop is a major maintenance component overhaul facility for the TTC bus fleet.

The Peter Witt streetcar and the new low-floor streetcar will also be on display.  As well, there will be a BBQ, games and a silent auction.

Volunteers will be on hand to provide a guided tour, and the two historic PCC streetcars will operate between Bathurst Station and the Hillcrest complex for those taking transit to the event.
