The Flexity Outlook is the latest model in the rolling stock of the Toronto tram system owned by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). Based on the Flexity Outlook vehicles used in several European cities, the new trams were first ordered in 2009 and are built by Bombardier Transportation in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. The Flexity Outlook is the first modern low-floor and wheelchair accessible tram used in the city. With a length of over 30 metres (98 ft), they are also the largest trams in the system. They have four sliding doors, air conditioning systems, seating for up to 70 passengers, and interior bicycle racks.

The vehicle is based on Bombardier's standardized Flexity Outlook product, which is also used in cities like Brussels, Marseille, and Geneva, but tailored to Toronto's needs. For example, as the older trams on the Toronto network still use trolley poles, the new trams had to be fitted with trolley poles too, while the overhead wire system is being modified for pantograph use.

Operations In Simulator

As this is a unidirectional vehicle, you can only use this tram on routes with turning loops on both ends.

Rijndam 2020 and Rijndam 2022 Light version:
- Station Buitenvelden - Statenpolder

Rijndam 2022 Full version (1.1):
- Centraal Station - Station Buitenvelden

- Centraal Station - Station Buitenvelden
- Centraal Station - Statenpolder
- Station Buitenvelden - Statenpolder

On the Metrosimulator model, the trolley pole has not been included; the simulator does not facilitate its use, and it can be expected that on the real trams, the trolley poles will be removed when the entire Toronto network has been modified for pantograph use.

The model is equiped with four passenger views;
4 - Section 1, left side, facing rear
5 - Section 3, right side, facing front
6 - Section 5, left side, facing front
7 - Section 5, back seats, facing front

The trams can be coupled together. In reality, this is for emergency use only (to pull or push a defective unit). In Metrosimulator, the trams can be used coupled in passenger service (if the platforms you are passing are long enough). The couplings will automatically appear when you join two units together.
