The Toronto Transit Commission is upgrading its fleet, including 264 new streetcars ($1.613 billion), new Wheel-Trans vehicles ($363 million) as well as hybrid and electric buses ($4.413 billion). An electrification program ($766 million) covers the electrification infrastructure to support the charging of electric buses according to the Green Bus Technology Plan approved by the TTC Board.
In 2022 the program aims to complete design for Eglinton, Wilson and Malvern garages and phase two construction at Wilson and Birchmount garages. By 2024, the TTC will complete installation of 60 e-chargers at three TTC garages (Arrow Road, Mt. Dennis and Eglinton) and plans electrification of the entire fleet by 2036. For the electric and hybrid bus projects, the TTC aims to deliver the pilot vehicle for the next round of procurement and start full production delivery in 2022. The Wheel-Trans project plans to deliver 109 seven-metre Wheel-Trans buses in 2022, as well as start design and award the contract for the next round of six-metre buses.
