Travel back in time this Sunday on a vintage TTC streetcar in downtown Toronto.
For the 80th anniversary of the President’s Conference Committee (PCC) streetcar, the relic vehicle will head out on a ceremonial ride downtown.
PPC cars were actually retired from TTC service back in 1995, but their service began in Toronto on September 23, 1938.
At its peak of popularity, the PPC fleet had more than 740 streetcars and was one of the largest fleets in North America. It serviced millions of transit riders through the years.
Rides on the vintage streetcar will be free of charge on Sunday.
On Sunday, the #TTC celebrates the 80th anniversary of the PCC streetcar and you’re invited. They entered service on Sept. 23, 1938 and were retired in 1995. We once had more than 700 in the fleet. Fare is free. Catch it on Queen St between Bathurst and Church Sts from 10am-2pm pic.twitter.com/xVlMckcSnc
