Media Advisory: TTC Streetcar Travel Fouled by Parked Cars

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 19, 2007) - Toronto Transit Commission is asking car drivers not to park their cars on TTC streetcar tracks.

The snow banks along many streetcar routes are impinging on the parking lanes. In too many cases, automobile drivers are parking on the outside of the snow banks, leaving their cars blocking streetcar tracks.

Over the past three days, since Sunday's snowstorm, thousands of TTC streetcar riders have been delayed as streetcars were held up due to careless parking.

The TTC is appealing to car drivers to park carefully. Give the streetcar rider a break!
