Toronto Streetcars are a part of Toronto’s history and has the largest network in North America. The first streetcars appeared in Toronto in the mid 19th century. Most of the network is situated in downtown Toronto and along the waterfront.
Toronto streetcars have undergone changes over the years and there have been controversies in recent years with the acquisition of Bombardier’s “Flexity” streetcar. The years of delays of implementing these streetcars has lead to millions of tax dollars spent with no apparent repercussions for Bombardier. The final cars were finally delivered which is almost 5-years after the agreed date. I have written an article about one of the incident with Bombardier’s Flexity streetcar here https://torontopics.me/2016/08/16/ttc-streetcar-derails-king-street/
While the Bombardier Flexity soley rides the tracks today, the city sometimes runs old Toronto streetcars. Some of these trolleys are 100 years old and normally can be seen running along Queen Street during holidays and special events. Below is a compilation of streetcars photos I have taken over the years.
