The Toronto Transit Commission's new low-floor streetcar will make its second appearance in the annual Toronto Beaches Lions Easter Parade this Sunday, April 5, at 2 p.m. For the second year in a row, all four generations of the TTC’s streetcar fleet ride the rails on Queen St. E.

The parade runs along Queen St. E. from Neville Loop to Woodbine Avenue.

Toronto's new streetcar, which began service in August, 2014 on the 510 Spadina, will join the parade along with the Peter Witt streetcar, which served the citizens of Toronto from 1921 until 1963, and the PCC streetcar that was the backbone of the TTC's streetcar fleet from 1938 until 1995.

During the parade, the 501 Queen streetcar route will turn back at Kingston Rd. and Queen St. E. 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 $11.50 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 youths 19 years of age or under. The pass is valid from the start of service until 5:30 a.m. the next morning.
