CBC Ottawa explains: What would it take to improve rural transit?

By Laura Osman, CBC News Ottawa, October 9, 2018

There was a period in Ottawa's history when people seemed to accept that the farther you lived from the core, the less bus service you could expect.

For awhile, those living in the city's rural areas seemed relatively happy not to have to pay into the city's transit system.

But this election, that seems to be changing.

People in the suburbs are crying out for light rail, more reliable commuter service and improved local bus routes. Even residents on the city's rural fringes are demanding bus service to connect them to the rest of Ottawa.
