The TTC’s eighth new low-floor streetcar, car number 4409, is entering service during this afternoon’s rush hour. Car 4409 will operate on the 510 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront routes.

The new streetcar is equipped with PRESTO machines and ticket validators to allow customers to pay their fare. The machines will also allow customers without a smartcard to purchase a single-ride Proof-of-Payment ticket using coins or tokens.

Both the 510 Spadina and the 509 Harbourfront routes are Proof-of-Payment, allowing customers with a transfer or valid TTC pass to board at any door.
The new car joins the other seven accessible low-floor streetcars in service on the 510 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront routes. The new streetcars feature a higher passenger capacity, air conditioning, and are fully accessible for customers using mobility devices.
