News comes to me that Škoda, one of the streetcar manufacturers who declined to bid on the recent TTC request for proposals, plans to re-enter discussions with the TTC.
At this point, I have no information on what vehicle(s) they might suggest, but a look at their website shows an interesting mix of possibilities.
This page shows a range of Škoda’s streetcar products, but does not include their latest 100% low floor model.
An order for these cars was recently placed for Riga, Latvia according to a press release. Although the T15 is officially standard gauge (1435mm), the Riga cars will be a wider gauge (1524mm, or 5 feet) leaving Toronto in the middle of the range.
More news on this as and when it develops.
