The new car made a moonlit round trip from the TTC’s Hillcrest facility to Bathurst station, making it the first ride on a city street. The route was chosen to test a variety of streetcar capabilities, including wide turning, braking and a dip beneath a bridge.
Riders will get to experience the new ride when the TTC introduces the new streetcars on the 510 Spadina route in early 2014.” Continue Reading

I think I’ll spend the opening evening by the snack table and take advantage of the cheap alcohol.
