Disembarking at the future Tremblay LRT station to run some errands? You'd better have a car handy.
Or, you could just head to Rideau station and perform those tasks on foot.Those are some of the findings of a "walk score" analysis carried out by the City of Ottawa for each of the Confederation Line stations set to open in 2018, as well as the existing O-Train stations. A walk score is a metric designed to illustrate how easy it is to perform everyday tasks from a particular point on foot, rather than by car.The scores are found in the city's annual development report for 2016, which will be presented at planning committee next week.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/lrt-transit-stations-walkscore-city-ottawa-1.4276391
