Announcement coming Friday on LRT opening date

By CBC News Ottawa, August 21, 2019

Ottawa residents will learn Friday when the long-awaited Confederation line LRT will finally begin service.

In an email sent Wednesday afternoon, the city announced a press event with Mayor Jim Watson and other local politicians about the opening of the line, on Friday afternoon.

The line has been undergoing testing for several weeks to ensure the system is ready for handover. Rideau Transit Group was to handover the key on Aug. 16, but missed that deadline.
