Trillium Line South is one of the three major extensions to Ottawa’s light rail transit system, opening in 2021. Trillium is an existing Line with eight kilometres of track and five stations.
This extension will see the Trillium Line continue from Greenboro to Bowesville in Riverside South, along with an additional three-kilometre spur line to provide a connection to the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. New stations will be equipped with fare vending machines and fare gates to be consistent with the fare control system being implemented by OC Transpo in 2017, on the existing Trillium Line stations. In total, these extensions will add 11 kilometres of track and seven new stations to the eight kilometers and four stations that Trillium Line provides today.
