It may have arrived 456 days late, but there's finally light at the end of the tunnel for people who've been waiting to ride Ottawa's new Confederation Line.

The doors to Ottawa's $2.1-billion light rail system will open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 14, Mayor Jim Watson announced at City Hall Friday afternoon.

"This is truly an exciting day for the city of Ottawa, and I want to take an opportunity to thank the residents of our city for their patience," Watson said.
