The Toronto Transportation Society will be offering Torontonians one of the few opportunities to travel Toronto’s streets in a vintage Peter Witt streetcar. As part of their annual Transportation Weekend festivities, the TTS will be chartering the TTC’s two remaining PCCs and Peter Witt car 2766 for a tour of the city’s streetcar network on Sunday, September 3, 2006.
This four hour excurion will start at the corner of Victoria and Dundas Streets at 10:30 a.m. Passengers will receive colour coded tickets, and will spend an equal amount of time in each of the three vehicles, to ensure that everybody has a chance to ride each vintage piece of equipment. If one of the two PCCs is unavailable, a CLRV will be substituted.
The cost to attend this charter will be $45 ($40 for TTS members). You should reserve by August 19 by sending a cheque or money order payable to the Toronto Transportation Society to:
2139 Nightengale Way
Oakville, ON L6M 3R9
The TTS is also offering a Saturday charter on a classic Hamilton Street Railway GM articulated bus. This six hour tour will include stops throughout downtown Hamilton and Burlington and, it is hoped, a tour HSR’s Mountain Garage. Further details on both charters and the weekend in general can be found here.
