LRT

A Swiss company will provide trains for the Trillium Line extension as part of the second stage of Ottawa’s light-rail transit line
Ontario premier Doug Ford confirmed a $1.21-billion commitment from the province to help fund the second phase of Ottawa’s light-rail transit line during an announcement Friday morning
Numerous councillors arguing to postpone the vote were rebuffed by city staff and fellow members of council on the high cost and delays associated with pushing the decision
The consortium building the first phase of Ottawa’s light-rail transit system will miss its third handover deadline, with the system now expected to be delivered in the second quarter of the year
Many councillors expressed frustration over the tight timeline needed to approve the $4.66 billion in contracts for LRT's second phase
Phase two of Ottawa's LRT system is expected to be ready in 2025 – two years later and $1.1B more than initial expectations
“I am happy to be wrong, but I am highly skeptical that they’re going to achieve March 31,” said transit boss John Manconi
The promise of light rail is in the air – but Orléans business leaders say that without a major east-end employer, the trains won’t be enough to keep the borough up to speed with the rest of Ottawa
