The TTC’s newest low-floor streetcar, car number 4412, entered service on the 510 Spadina route this morning, bringing the total number of new streetcars in service to 11.

Low-floor streetcars are 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 10 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.

The TTC’s low-floor streetcar project is funded by the Government of Canada's federal Gas Tax Fund, the Government of Ontario and the City of Toronto.
