Virtual tour gives future LRT riders glimpse of Lyon Street station

By Blair Crawford, Ottawa Citizen, February 12, 2019

A virtual tour of Lyon Street station launched Tuesday gives future LRT travellers a 360-degree walk through one of the main downtown stations on the Confederation Line.

Virtual visitors can use their computer or cellphone to walk their way through the station, starting at street level and descending stairs and escalators all the way to the train platform. Along the way, clickable “hot spots” provide more details on safety features such as the location of emergency phones, signage and wayfinding markers on the floor.

Stairwells feature bicycle runnels to help cyclists guide their bikes down the steps. There is information on the public art installations, locations of the electronic information kiosks, turnstiles and markers to show where the paid fare zone begins.
