The new streetcars starting Sunday on the 510 Spadina route will feature a new proof-of-payment system and it may slow down the commute. The fare payment box next to the driver will be replaced by a machine that will print out a proof of purchase. CityNews timed out a ticket purchase using the new machine. It took about 16 seconds from the second a token went in to the minute the ticket printed. With the older streetcars, it only takes a few seconds to pay with token or cash by dropping it into the fare payment box at the front of the vehicle.

Nonetheless, Underwood has been granted an all-star backup team that’s sure to keep her from dropping the ball.
Underwood will be accompanied by 11 of the NFL’s best players, including the Manning brothers and 2013′s Super Bowl champ quarterback Russell Wilson, when she blasts out “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” on the SNF season-opener Sept. 7.
