Interprovincial Transit Study summary of public comments

posted Nov 4, 2010, 1:48 PM by John Verbaas
The consultants have released their report summarizing the 230+ responses from the public during the current (Phase IV) of this study.  The majority of responses on the infrastructure topic favored an LRT based solution forming a loop crossing the Ottawa River both west and east of the downtown and terminating on the Gatineau side at boul Lorain.  

On the topic of operations, the top 3 comments were to (a) co-ordinate STO and OC Transpo schedules at transfer points, (b) introduce a common fare system, and finally (c) introduce a common smart card system.

A final recommendation from the NCC and their consultants is promised for late 2010/early 2011.
