After 30 years in service on the streets of Toronto, the TTC is retiring the last of it’s articulated streetcars, as the commission continues to convert the fleet to become more accessible.
To mark the occasion, the transit commission is offering free rides on the last two ”bendy” streetcars on Labour Day Monday along Queen Street, from Greenwood to the loop on Bathurst.
The retiring streetcars went into service in 1988.
The end is also nigh for about 60 of the commission’s original 15-metre-long streetcars, dating back to the late ’70s, which will be retired at the end of this year.
