The provincial government has allocated up to $416 million, or one-third funding of eligible costs related to the purchase of 204 light rail vehicles, to replace the current streetcar fleet. Delivery of the vehicles has seen significant delays throughout the order’s tenure due, in large part, to issues with the supply chain. In July of 2018, it was announced that the first 67 of the 89 cars delivered would have to be sent to the company for repairs, citing the fact that they could fail prematurely. The program is active and is slated to run from 2009 to 2019, when the last LRV is delivered. However, an updated timeline for the delivery of all 204 functioning vehicles has not yet been established.
