Toronto's Scarborough Line turns 30, debuts two new trains


The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) last week announced it would debut two new trains on its Scarborough transit line.

The line has been operating for 30 years, its original expectancy, TTC officials said in a press release. The new trains will allow the agency to continue the line.

The trains' design will match the number and color systems in the agency's subway lines, officials said.

Over the next few months, the trains' interiors will also see new finishes on floors and walls, as well as a new seating configuration to accommodate wheelchairs.

The Scarborough Line will eventually be decommissioned following the opening of the Scarborough Subway, which is a planned extension of the Bloor-Danforth Line, according to a TTC press release.
