COMMENT: A tale of two LRT lines, for Stittsville and Riverside South

By Devyn Barrie, StittsvilleCentral, May 4, 2018

While Stittsville is still playing catch-up on the light rail transit file, Riverside South may be getting its own LRT station as early as 2021.

This, of course, all contingent on the provincial Liberals securing re-election this June, but it is a telling turn of events all the same: on Thursday, Mayor Jim Watson announced that the province would kick in $50 million to extend the Trillium line south into the centre of the community. With another $30 million contributed by two large property developers, service for this extension shall begin in 2021.
