Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson expects residents to be riding trains down the city's new Confederation Line in September.

After a meeting with train manufacturers Alstom, Tuesday, Watson told 1310 NEWS' Ottawa Today with Mark Sutcliffe, he is confident the new light rail system will be taking passengers not long after Labour Day.

However, the mayor said he would have preferred a roll out sometime in the summer.
