The City of Gatineau has announced their vision for a massive, 26 km light rail transit line, connecting residents to the city's downtown core and across to Ottawa.

The $2.1-billion project would bring 42.6% of Gatineau residents within walking distance of a train stop.

"Our road system is at its capacity," said Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pednaud-Jobin at Wednesday's announcement. "We invest in public transit, but there's a limit to what can to be to alleviate the inconvenience that is already felt by our citizens."
