The new streetcar order will be used to meet Toronto’s ridership demands and growth needs.

“Alstom would like to thank our customer, the TTC, for their continued confidence in our zero-emission Flexity streetcars,” said Jérôme Wallut, President, Alstom Americas. “Over the years, our innovative, reliable, Made-in-Canada rail products have established themselves as a signature element of Toronto’s iconic cityscape and contribute daily to the sustainable economic and social development of our Canadian cities.”

The Flexity LRVs for the TTC are five-module, uni-directional vehicles with all-wheel drive. They are based on light rail technology modified to TTC specifications and special requirements of Toronto’s streetcar network. To date, 204 streetcars have been delivered to the TTC, and the additional order of 60 streetcars will help maintain jobs and expertise, particularly at Alstom’s site in Thunder Bay, Ontario, which has experience assembling and testing previously delivered streetcars to the TTC.

The streetcar project will be supported by Alstom sites in St-Bruno and La Pocatière, Quebec, which will provide project management and certain component sub-assembly, respectively. It will allow Alstom to maintain 400 jobs at the Thunder Bay and La Pocatière facilities.

“Alstom would like to thank our customer, the TTC, for their continued confidence in our zero-emission Flexity streetcars.”

In addition to streetcars, Alstom has also supplied 480 Toronto Rocket subway cars to the TTC (ttc.ca) and is currently providing a communications-based train control (CBTC) railway signalling solution on Line 1 Yonge University as well as the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE).

Globally, over 5,000 Flexity LRVs have been ordered or are already in successful revenue service. They are renowned for their ability to run smoothly in addition to their spacious interiors, wide doors, air conditioning, enhanced features for people with limited mobility and improved passenger information, all to ensure a more comfortable journey and passenger experience.
