O-Train Starts Journey Towards Smart Growth

Ottawa, Canada, begins a new chapter in its transportation history with the debut of the O-Train

"The spanking new O-Train rolled into Ottawa's transportation history yesterday, signalling a new era of public transit in the growing city. Ottawa Mayor Bob Chiarelli, a champion of the light-rail project, praised everyone who made it a reality, calling it 'a train to the future' that should serve the future transportation needs of a growing city."
