Moodie LRT station won’t have park and ride because there’s no room

West-end commuters won’t be able to ditch their cars at the future Moodie LRT station and ride the rails to downtown Ottawa.

There simply isn’t enough room near the station to build a park-and-ride facility, according to a report on the Stage 2 transit expansion.

Council had asked staff to see if a park and ride could be built at Moodie station, which will become one of the western terminuses of the Confederation Line LRT in 2023.

The Moodie LRT extension is being added to the $3-billion Stage 2 blueprint. The city expects it will help employees with the Department of National Defence get to work when their offices are relocated to the old Nortel complex. Using transit, it will take a bus ride to get from the LRT station to the DND complex.
