The 502 Downtowner is a streetcar line (temporarily replaced by shuttle buses as of fall 2016) 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.
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 (during which time the 503 streetcars are also running, covering much of the same route) and every 10 minutes at other times during the day.
