The Toronto Transit Commission is recognizing the 80th anniversary of the Presidents’ Conference Committee streetcar this weekend by offering patrons a chance to ride the vintage trolley for free on Sunday. The PCC streetcars hit Toronto streets for the first time on September 23, 1938. The PCC cars were finally retired in 1995.
If you’re interested in hitching a ride on the retro streetcar, it will run on Queen Street, between Bathurst Street and Church Street, on Sunday, September 23 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
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
