People living in and visiting Toronto will see the first of the new streetcars by the summer of 2012. At that time, a period of testing of the prototypes on the TTC’s challenging streetcar network with its tight turns and steep hills, will be underway.
The delivery of the first car is expected by the end of 2013. Afterwards the streetcars will enter service in 2014 on several of TTC's streetcar lines.
By 2018, all of the TTC’s older streetcars will be replaced by the new vehicles.
