Stage 2 expansion of Ottawa’s Light Rail Transit System

The Ottawa Light Rail Transit (LRT) Stage 2 project builds on the Stage 1 construction of the Confederation Line and its 12.5 kilometres of electrified rail. Stage 1 extends from Tunney’s Pasture in the west to Blair Station in the east, including a tunnel through Ottawa’s downtown core.

Through Stage 2, three main extensions will be built: Confederation Line East, Confederation Line West, and Trillium Line South. Once completed, these projects will support efforts to reduce urban congestion, increase transit ridership, and improve safety and mobility in the Ottawa region.
