How are these cars holding up these days? They've been in service now for a few years and, since I don't get to Philly much any more, I've been wondering if they have been as successful as was hoped when they went into service.

Still rolling... was on Girard again yesterday, and grabbed a few shots. This was the best of the bunch.

Okay Charlie, you have gotten me curious. How much is the carfare on that PCC ?
 
Last time I rode a PCC it was 15 cents.

Base fare: $2. Token: $1.45 per ride.
With a pass, the per-ride cost decreases even more, depending how often you ride per week, month, etc..
