Ottawa transit: road to the 22nd century

Which is about when it will be built.

A city report says Ottawa's transit plan will dramatically transform Carling Ave. -- but don't expect any big changes for more than two decades.

After much review and public consultation over recent weeks on the city's long-range transit plan, city staff are expected to recommend today Carling as the route of the secondary east-west transit corridor. But construction won't begin until at least 2018, when the main rapid transit line is projected to be completed.

Carling on right track: LRT would double employment along roadway - Ottawa Sun - November 10, 2008

Ah, beautiful Carling, darling of people driving as fast as they can to get somewhere else. Much like most every other street and road in Ottawa.

Hey Ottawa, I have an idea for doubling employment along streets: how about having some places in the city that don't suck, so that people actually want to spend time there.
