INTRODUCING YOUR NEW 1980 STREETCAR ROUTE NUMBERS

  • Streetcar passengers on Lake Shore Blvd are getting over the puzzling loss of the LONG BRANCH route. Seriously, the new streetcars display a route number rather than a name and LONG BRANCH has been replaced by a 'new' route - number 507.

  • The numbering of streetcar routes will soon carry over to the rest of the system. New signs are being prepared right now for the existing PCC streetcars and our equipment people will begin installing them on February 4th.

Here is a list of  the streetcar route numbers

501 QUEEN
502 DOWNTOWNER
503 KINGSTON RD
504 KING
505 DUNDAS
