The TTC will be rerouting buses and streetcars through the area, and police say drivers can expect delays in the area and should consider alternate methods of transportation.
Check out the parade route and be sure to plan ahead to snag your spot before this annual celebration of all things Easter begins.
And this year, TTC vehicles, vintage and modern, will once again join the annual Toronto Beaches Easter Parade.
One of the TTC’s new accessible streetcars will join a refurbished CLRV streetcar, along with the historic Peter Witt streetcar, which served Toronto residents from 1921 until 1963, and the classic PCC streetcar that was the backbone of the TTC’s streetcar fleet for several decades starting in 1938. The final PCC was retired from service in 1995.
During the parade, the 501 Queen streetcar route will turn back at Kingston Rd. starting at 1 p.m. The 64 Main and 92 Woodbine South buses offer service nearest the parade route but will also be on diversion for the duration.
