Toronto is one of the very few cities in North America (and the only city in Canada) to retain its streetcars. Most routes still run with older, inaccessible vehicles, but new low-floor vehicles with wheelchair ramps, air conditioning, and more doors are starting to arrive, as of 2017 running only on the 509, 510 and 514 routes.

Most routes still run with older, inaccessible vehicles, but new low-floor vehicles with wheelchair ramps, air conditioning, and more doors are starting to arrive, as of 2015 running only on the 509 and 510 routes, mixed with the legacy vehicles.

All streetcar routes operate on proof-of-payment rules, meaning that passengers must always keep their transfer, Presto card or pass for inspection. Fare inspectors do regular patrols, and "failure to surrender fare media" carries a fine of $425. When in doubt, always ask the driver for a transfer if paying by cash or token.  If using a Presto card, simply tap as you board and present the card as proof of payment. More information is available on the TTC's proof-of-payment page. [https://www.ttc.ca/Fares_and_passes/Fare_information/Proof_of_payment.jsp]
