OC Transpo wants to earmark $4.8 million for training about 100 staff before the Confederation Line opens next year, another cost that falls outside of the $2.1-billion LRT contract.

Troy Charter, director of transit operations, said the price tag largely covers costs for staff who need to be trained in advance of the LRT line opening in 2018.

“It’s about making sure our staff are operationally ready Day 1,” Charter said in an interview Monday.
