• Ottawa's Unique Bus Rapid Transit System

    A quick trip on Ottawa's unique bus rapid transit system. There are many different styles of rapid transit, developed for the circumstances of each city and transit line. Seen from a downtown street, Ottawa's Bus Rapid Transit system does not look much different from a busy bus stop in any North American city. The system lacks off-bus ticketing downtown, which slows loading. It is also an 'open system' meaning that many buses going to different destinations use the same bus lanes, which can sometime slow boarding even more. But this means many people can get from their suburban homes to downtown and back without transferring at all. In the downtown core, there are also occasional problems with cars and trucks blocking bus lanes. But unlike light rail vehicles, buses can maneuver around obs...

  • Buses in Ottawa, Canada

    The current public transit system is operated by OC Transpo, a department of the city. An integrated hub-and-spoke system of services is available consisting of: regular buses travelling on fixed routes in mixed traffic, typical of most urban transit systems; a bus rapid transit (BRT) system — a high frequency bus service operating on the transit-way — a network of mostly grade-separated dedicated bus lanes within their own right-of-way and having full stations with Park & Ride facilities further supported by on-road reserved bus lanes and priority traffic signal controls

  • DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY - Ottawa Confederation Line (EAST) - Light Rail Transit

    Aerial photography filmed with a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced. The Confederation Line is a light rail transit (LRT) line under construction in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The Confederation Line is a transportation system worthy of one of the world’s leading capital cities. The 12.5 kilometre line from Blair Station to Tunney’s Pasture includes a 2.5 kilometre tunnel through the downtown core, 13 stations, a Maintenance and Storage Facility and the purchase of 34 Alstom CITADIS Light Rail Vehicles. http://www.ligneconfederationline.ca/

    This video is a contest submission for the 2013 Global Engineering Award, presented by CH2M HILL. We propose to connect Ottawa and Gatineau by means of Light Rail Transit across the Ottawa River using the existing Prince of Wales Bridge. There is an old, unused railway connecting Bayview Station in Ottawa, to Montcalm Station and beyond in Gatineau. Our goal is to use existing infrastructure which is currently not in use, to improve the transit connections between Ottawa and Gatineau. This LRT link would be a cost effective solution to reduce congestion along the few bridges that cross the Ottawa River. It would also create an appealing travel option for commuters, students, residents and tourists. This commuting option would be cheaper than driving and would save time by skipping the ...

However, once past Ottawa's downtown area buses move very quickly, shown in the video at three times actual speed. Note that most of this video was filmed from the upper deck of a double-decker bus.

This commuting option would be cheaper than driving and would save time by skipping the congested bridges. The City of Ottawa is currently building the Confederation LRT line, which will replace the existing Bus Transitway. Bayview Station would be an ideal transit hub as it would connect the O-Train, traveling south to Ottawa International Airport and the Confederation Line, traveling East-West across the City. Montcalm Station is an ideal Gatineau terminal as would connect to the major bus lines in Gatineau, as well as the newly constructed Rapibus Line (Gatineau's bus highway). This link would allow locals and tourists to eventually visit Parliement Hill, Kanada, Orleans, Gatineau park, and Ottawa International Airport by the comfort of Light Rail Transit.
