Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) welcomes 60 Flexity light rail vehicles (LRVs) to the city, courtesy of Alstom. The unidirectional streetcars meet Toronto's readership demands and growing needs. The Flexity LRVs include an all-wheel-drive for simple operation.

The new TTC streetcars include five modules that work on a zero-emission light rail system. In addition, its light rail technology is customized to TTC specifications to accommodate the city's special streetcar network requirements.
