Portage Bridge best choice for main transit link, STO says

By CBC News Ottawa, May 29, 2019

The Portage Bridge is the most promising option and the Prince of Wales Bridge has "little potential" to link the transit networks in Gatineau, Que. and Ottawa, according to a study presented by the Société de transport de l'Outaouais.

In a presentation Tuesday, the STO said the Portage Bridge would provide better service to downtown Gatineau, and would also allow the agency to drop off its users at Ottawa's downtown Lyon or Parliament stations, which may have more capacity.

The study, conducted by Quebec engineering firm WSP Global, found that linking the STO with OC Transpo's light rail at Bayview station via the Prince of Wales Bridge is not recommended as a main link.
