LRT for Canada's Capital

This article discusses the return of light rail transit (LRT) to Ottawa, Canada with the opening of the Confederation Light Rail Transit line in spring of 2018. The Confederation LRT, which will feature 13 stations and operate entirely on a private right-of-way, will be the first electric rail transit in Ottawa since streetcars were discontinued in 1959. The author details the design and features of the LRT stations and terminals as well as the various suppliers who will provide components for the system's 300-passenger capacity light rail vehicles.
