City of Ottawa aiming to open LRT to public in April

By Jeff Slack, 1310 News, January 8, 2019

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is confident members of the public will be riding the Confederation Line by late April.

"I've been told generally it takes three to four weeks to get everything up and running to make sure we meet all the safety standards, which of course is our first and most important preoccupation," Watson told the Rick Gibbons Show on 1310 NEWS.

However, this will only be possible if there is a smooth transition.

"Our folks in transit services have responsibilities that they have to fulfill, and they anticipate that to be three to four weeks which would be the end of April," Watson added.
