I recently had a 3 hr layover at the Ottawa Airport....so took a quick round trip on OC Transpo's 'O Train' Diesel LRT 'Trillium Line'

A 10 min bus ride got me from the Airport to Greenboro Station where the Trilliam Line runs every 12 minutes and takes about 15 minutes to Bayview Station.

The track used is a former CPR Subdivision that once had regular passenger service. The Trillium line will eventually reach the MacDonald-Cartier International Airport:

Ottawa also has another major LRT (electric) project under construction and due to open next year.....the 'Confederation Line'

Nice pics from Beautiful Ottawa, one of the World's best kept Secrets!😎

I watched the Grey Cup on ESPN from Ottawa last night. Toronto won an exciting Victory in pouring Snow before a Large Crowd of excited Canuks!😄

I personally would like a Trillian line to ride. Esp. If using the same actor from the movie.

No, its definitely Trillian, names for Trisha McMillan from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, because I know exactly what pun I am mAking at any given moment, even if nobody else does. Or wants to.

Forget Canada; I think you'll have better luck on the Des-chunnel.
