The Fort York Historic site is conveniently accessible by streetcar, direct from Union station. Or you could drive if you want to pay for parking and pollute the environment.
MODERN STREETCAR INTERIOR
We took one of the new streetcars to Fort York and from the stop it was a 3 minute walk to the entrance. You can now pay your fare at a special machine inside the new streetcars.
One of the highlights of the day was having the opportunity to ride a classic streetcar on the way back to Union station! According to the friendly TTC worker I spoke with, they are being used during the Harbour Front festival. It was a really cool experience, as I have never been on a classic streetcar before, most of the people who boarded it were equally excited. It was a good end to a good day.
