Using the Prince of Wales bridge to integrate Ottawa and Gatineau’s rapid-transit systems may be the long-term goal, but a key first step toward a more seamless system could come next year when the Confederation LRT Line opens.

The $2.1-billion rail line is expected to alleviate the current bottleneck of buses on downtown streets.

Discussions between politicians and transit planners from both sides of the river have been underway for almost two years, and the plan they’ve hammered out, including details about the presence and volume of STO buses on downtown Ottawa streets, should be made public before summer.
