Feb 2, 2011:  The City of Ottawa Transportation Committee approved a statement of work to commence an Environmental Assessment study to select and design a solution for improving transit service along Baseline road from Bayshore station to Prince of Wales Drive.  A range of alternative corridors and designs will be examined, including on-street bus lanes (centre and curb side) and segregated transit service. 

 The study will carry on for 18 months and will examine the need, the existing conditions, and potential alternatives. Those alternatives will be evaluated against a number of criteria and a cost and design proposed for a recommended solution. During this time period numerous public open houses will be scheduled as well as meetings with smaller consultation groups of citizens, businesses, and other government agencies.

The next step is the selection of a consultant to perform the EA study. More details can be found on the Baseline Road Transit Improvements page.
