Ottawa Light Rail On Track to Expand
This month, Ottawa's city council approved the second stage of the city's light rail transit project. "Stage 2 is an ambitious plan to expand the O-Train network in order to bring 77 percent of the city's population within five kilometers (3.1 miles) of rail," writes Mischa Wanek-Libman for Mass Transit. Additions to the network's Trillium and Confederation lines will add up to 44 kilometers (27.3 miles) of track as well as 24 new stations, costing C$4.66 billion (US$3.49 billion).
