Toronto Transit Commission 5381-6196 are Bombardier Toronto Rocket (TR) subway cars being built and delivered since 2010. The cars are designed to operate in semi-permanantly coupled sets of six and have open gangways between them.

The TRs currently operate on Line 1 and Line 4.

History

The TTC entered into a contract with Bombardier for 234 subway cars at a value of 710 million dollars in December 2006.[1] This has allowed the TTC to replace all the H4 and H5 subway cars. On May 6, 2010, city council approved the purchase of an additional 186 TR cars. This has allowed for the replacement of the H6 subway cars and for more trains on the Yonge-University-Spadina line. In 2014, an additional 60 cars were ordered to meet future ridership demand. The implementation of automatic train control on the Yonge-University-Spadina line will allow for headways to be reduced safely.

Delivery and testing

The first train was originally expected to arrive in late 2009 to early 2010 to undergo testing with passenger service commencing in 2011.[2] The bankruptcy of New York-based door supplier Curtis Doors in early 2010 delayed production of the cars. The bankruptcy was considered beyond Bombardier’s control, so they were not penalized for the delay.[3] It was estimated that the first car would not arrive on TTC property until August 2010.

While the first set (5381-5386) remained with Bombardier for extended testing, the second set (5391-5396) was delivered to the TTC in October 2010. It was unveiled at a media event on October 14, 2010 at Downsview Subway Station. It then underwent clearance testing throughout the Yonge-University-Spadina line for the next few months.

The third set built (5401-5406) was delivered in December 2010 and had modifications based on issues experienced with the second set. The second set was eventually sent back to Bombardier for modification. The TTC estimated in that the new trains would not be in service until at least February 2011 (the TTC had earlier projected an in-service date in late 2010 or January 2011).[4]) Further testing and issues with the trains lead to the date being pushed back further to June 2011.[5]

Starting in May 2011, one set was tested without passengers on the YUS line (initially Set 2 but later Set 3).

During initial testing, it was found the roof mounted HVAC system was blowing dust from the ceiling around the station as it passed. To address this problem, ceiling slats were removed at stations and the ceiling cleaned.

Entry into service

In mid-July, TTC chair Karen Stintz announced via Twitter that the new Toronto Rocket train would enter passenger service July 21. A media event was held at Downsview Station before the morning's inaugural run. The train remained in service until the night, and the TTC tweeted the location of the train while it was out. Until crew training was completed, the TR train was operated either as an extra run on the line, or on crews that only operate during rush hour.

In service there is noticeable lag in door operations as the doors will only open when the train is in the full stop position and recognized by the guard. Passengers have also noticed that the human voice, supplied by Susan Bigioni, for announcements was replaced by an electronic one on the new cars.[6]

Modifications

An issue affecting those using mobility devices arose soon after introduction where the train would be at a height higher than the platform, making it difficult to board. According to the TTC, the suspension compensates for the passenger load more quickly than the older trains.[7] This issue is still being resolved.

The original design of the cab-to-platform door proved to be less-than secure. It was redesigned with an improved track and locking mechanism. Existing cars were retrofitted and newer cars were delivered with the new design.

The door chimes are played inside the car and the volume is adjusted according to ambient noise levels. This can result in instances where the chimes are played at an uncomfortable level inside the car, but are still difficult to hear for passengers on the platform. Set 9 was modified with exterior speakers for the chimes in late 2012. Later deliveries also came with the same setup. The TTC has indicated it is in the process of retrofitting existing cars.

There was a noticeable lack of hand-holds under the HVAC at the ends of the cars. To address this, extra grab rails and straps were installed. Like the exterior chimes, these were first tested on set 9.

Four-car sets

The TTC plans to convert all subway lines to One Person Train Operation (OPTO). OPTO will be piloted on Line 4 using four-car Toronto Rocket trains. Line 4 was selected because it only requires four trains for daily operation. The TTC will also be replacing the current T1 trains on Line 4 with Toronto Rocket trains equipped with automatic train control (ATC). Line 4 is accessed from Line 1, where ATC will be implemented in 2020.[8]

The TTC negotiated the conversion of the final four six-car Toronto Rocket sets to six four-car sets. The 'C' cars of the final four sets will become 'A' cars with cabs and used for two more sets with the remaining 'B' cars. In the period prior to delivery of these four-car sets, trainset 10 (5471-5476) was converted to a four-car train. This will allow for integration testing for OPTO by the end of 2015. Once all six of the new four-car sets are delivered and certified, trainset 10 will be converted back to a six-car train.[9]

The first four-car set entered service on Line 4 on May 30, 2016.

New features to the TTC

  • Amber brake lights on the ends of the train
  • Blue lights on the train exterior show the entrance to the multi-purpose areas inside used for mobility devices, strollers, bicycles, or large luggage.
  • Two wheelchair areas per car compared to only one on the current cars.
  • Colour contrasted anti-microbial stanchions.
  • Next station display with display for which side the doors will open.
  • Active subway map with LED lights indicating progress of the train. The map will also show if the door below will open or not (X indicates the opposite side and arrow indicates this side).
  • Open gangways.
  • Way-finding coloured floor guide.
  • Each car has six emergency passenger intercom to contact a member of the train crew. There are four points at alternate doorways and one at each wheelchair area.
  • Ceiling mounted CCTV cameras.
  • Built-in evacuation ramps at each end of the train.
  • LCD screens displaying passenger information.

Details

Cars are numbered as a 6-car set, as follows:

  • Cars with fleet numbers ending in 1 and 6 are end "A" cars equipped with cabs; cars ending in 2-3-4-5 are intermediate non-cab cars.
  • No cars will have numbers ending with a 7, 8, 9 or 0.
  • Line 4 Sheppard: car numbers end in 1, 2, 5, 6.
  • Fleet numbers in this series will be reused from retired H1, H2, H4, H5, and H6-class subway cars, as well as retired Flyer D901 buses. This marks the first time where subway car numbers will be reused within the series that retired the number.

As of May 2016, 71 6-car sets are in service on Line 1 Yonge-University, and the three four-car sets are in service on Line 4 Sheppard.
