ABOUT STAGE 2 LRT
Stage 2 will change the way we move around Ottawa. Think about it: 44 kilometres of rail and 24 new stations. That means shorter commutes, cleaner air, and a stronger economy.
You will be able to get on a train as far east as Trim Road, travel traffic-free through the downtown tunnel, and arrive as far west as Algonquin College or Moodie. If you’re coming from the south, Stage 2 will extend the existing O-Train Trillium Line to Riverside South, while adding stations along the way at Walkley and Gladstone, along with a link that will take you all the way to Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. When complete, Stage 2 will bring 77% of residents within five kilometres of rail.
Ottawa City Council approved the Contract Award of Ottawa’s Stage 2 Light Rail Transit Projects and Related Matters Report on March 6, 2019. Construction will begin later this year. For further updates on the project, please sign up for the Stage 2 LRT Project Newsletter.
We need to stay ahead of the gridlock being experienced in other cities. With Ottawa projected to grow to 1.14 million people by 2031, Stage 2 will help ensure the nation’s capital continues to be one of the best places in the world to live and work.
