I went to ride Toronto's beautiful, new streetcars the first day they went into service and I love them. Well, everything except for the location of the box where you pay to get on. As you can see in the video, once the streetcar gets full and people block the machine, how do you pay for the ride? How do you even get close to it, in a packed streetcar? It might be an issue.

      smooth ride, quiet engine. If the machine is not next to the driver and no one checks, some passengers won't pay. is there an inspector on board the train?

      Sadly, no. It's still exactly a streetcar, with stop at every corner, no priority at intersection and on traffic lights, at most lines, no passenger platforms, at major no dedicated lines, old-fashioned payment system with coins and coin-boxes. But 2 large pluses of T-tram is that it goes through the centre and has full integration with other PT's systems. So, to become an on-street metro, it has to make much more.

      Not long enough, too many people riding it stand up. lack seating bad circulation between cars. Need to be replace by a better transit system like a light metro line.

      It's not that it is not long enough, it's just too big an intervals in timetable between each tram. But it doesn't need to be replaced, it needs to be modified to meet the LRT-standards, i.e. dedicated lines, smart traffic lights with "demand on tram" operating, platforms, long distance between stations, with stops only at intersection with other express-lines, priority of tram to pedestrians, low-speed design measures on street intersections with tram-line, especially at intersections with other crossing express lines, adding the local bus lines on right-side dedicated line (or with mixed priority), with often stops to serve "the last mile". These measures can be done with the existing lines w/o any "replacement", it's just transforms the tram from local conception of "streetcar" to optimal LRT state, which is express one.

      I didn't see the POP kiosks on these things.. Then again, I bought an all-day pass last time I was in Toronto, so I didn't need to buy a ticket. All I had to do was show the pass to the cop if he asked for it.

      The CLRV's had a classic look. I remember when Toronto first started replacing the PCC's with them. It's hard to believe their useful life has ended. The new cars look great, and the increased capacity should make operations faster and smoother. Toronto had the good sense not to abandon streetcars, unlike most cities that are now spending billions to put them back in service. Thanks for the video. Excellent!

      It doesn't necessarily means that they're out of service 'coz 1- and 2-carriage cars are very suitable for between-peak times of day when payloads are less. But surely they need to be refurbished to get some modern on-board equipment and low-floor platform in-between
