The key to delivering a new regional rail service is fixing the rail line near Bayview Station and reopening the Prince of Wales bridge
Many growing cities approaching 1.5 million people introduce a regional rail service. Toronto introduced regional rail in 1967, with the Go Train system. The Ottawa-Gatineau Metropolitan Area has surpassed the 1.3 million mark, and now it's time to get our city moving.
Clive's plan is to run trains on rail lines that already exist, making this the most cost-effective solution available. It will get 20,000 cars off Highway 417, reduce our carbon footprint, open our city for business, and connect the four corners of the National Capital Region.
Our Capital Region Rail system will be implemented in three phases over four years:
- Phase 1: Restoring the Prince of Wales Bridge and Related Infrastructure.
- Phase 2: Restoring Train Service to the Prince of Wales Bridge.
- Phase 3: Getting Ottawa Moving.
