The TTC’s tenth new low-floor streetcar, car number 4411, entered service on the 509 Harbourfront route this afternoon.

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.

The new car joins the other nine accessible low-floor streetcars in service on the 509 Harbourfront and 510 Spadina routes, both of which are Proof-of-Payment, allowing customers with a transfer or valid TTC pass to board at any door.

The new streetcars feature a higher passenger capacity, air conditioning, and are fully accessible for customers using mobility devices.

Car 4412 is expected to ship from Thunder Bay later this week.
