An Environmental Assessment (“EA”) to develop a plan to extend and expand the City’s existing diesel-powered O-Train service has begun. The proposed expansion will go from the Greenboro Transit Station to Bowesville Road, with the option of an additional line to the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport.

The EA process is a comprehensive consultation program involving many stakeholders, including members of the community. The study is expected to take approximately 15 months to complete.

I encourage you to participate in the EA process and to attend consultation events when they are held.  For more information or to be placed on the study mailing list, please contact Colin.Simpson@ottawa.ca.
