Ottawa’s Transit Hubs a Departure from the Norm
In their infancy, transit hubs were simply a place for travellers to arrive or depart. No more. Rather than helping you get to your destination, today’s transit hubs are a destination in themselves. The services, facilities, and amenities found around modern transit hubs attract people, encourage investment, generate revenue, and boost wider prosperity.
Ottawa is no exception. Transit hubs, particularly those along the light rail transit system (LRT), are now vibrant community spaces. For example, the newly renovated Bayview Station near 900 Albert Street attracts people and business from several downtown neighbourhoods, such as Hintonburg, Mechanicsville, Lebreton Flats, Little Italy and Chinatown. And convenient access to recreation trails along the Ottawa River—as well as downtown—is attracting a growing number of residents to the area.
When it comes to a quality lifestyle, Ottawa’s transit hubs— depart from the ordinary.
