Streetcar service back up on Queen Street


Streetcar service was back up and running on Queen Street Saturday morning.

The TTC put the brakes on the cars Wednesday, because of unknown brake issues that surfaced on some of their vehicles. 

Over two dozen cars were affected by some type of faulty emergency brake problems. 

In recent days, the TTC has painstakingly inspected the entire route using a special streetcar outfitted with cameras in its wheel wheel to search for any debris or issues with the track that could have caused the damage.

As of 6 a.m. Saturday morning, the 501 and 508 streetcars were back up to speed, although the cause of the brake issues remains unclear.
