The 502 Downtowner is a streetcar line operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It runs from the Bingham loop at Victoria Park Avenue and Kingston Road in the Beaches neighbourhood to McCaul loop in downtown Toronto.

Route[edit]

It runs southwest on Kingston Road then turns west along Queen Street. It goes west along Queen to McCaul Street where there is a turning loop just north of Queen Street West. The route is grouped together with the 503 Kingston Road for accounting purposes, as they share a large amount of the same track.

The 502 Downtowner runs during the day from Monday to Friday only, with a service every 12 minutes during rush hour and every 20 minutes at other times during the day.

Buses replaced streetcars on the route, while Bingham Loop was being rebuilt in 2010.
