Long time passingMay 16, 2012 by: Samuel Scheib
Hail Mary passes, hotdogs, and one’s own life: the longer the better. Add streetcars to the list. The Toronto TTC takes streetcars very seriously and they are about to add 130 foot vehicles to their fleet. These are streetcars, not light rail. They are a single car in length, but a multiple-articulated car with four bends, 5 sections with special seating areas for families, wheelchair ramps, and other perks. This is a good video, from December 2011, about an exciting development in transit. Now if only TTC would give the streetcar its own right-of-way . . .
