If you're planning to be among the first to ride Ottawa's new Confederation Line, don't show up too early on opening day.

While the LRT system will open at 6 a.m. most Saturdays, things will be a bit slower to get going on Sept. 14.

It will be 2 p.m. before the public can hop aboard that day, with the turnstiles open at 1:45 p.m.
