  1. @Loud-InveroHey! After further digging, I actually found another abandoned Transitway Station, the old Place d'Orleans Terminus from the 90s. If you zoom in on GeoOttawa, you can even see the bus shelters and the Transitway signs.
  2. It seems like a really odd place to build a busway, know of any reasons why they built it in the first place?
  3. Have you taken it recently? I used to take the 63/64 every day for work, and it was the worst nightmare. It would take around 20minutes to go from Solandt and down Teron road (a stretch that takes 3minutes in car non-peak hour). It is also crazy hard to go north passed Terry Fox, due to the crazy detour the 63 and 64 take after Innovation, snaking through all the tiny suburban streets up in Morgan's Grant and Shirley's brook. Klondike Station alone would make bussing downtown a feasible option for everyone in Kanata North. A transitway down March would cut at least 20minutes of travel time fro
  4. Hey! It would be nice to have a longer list of "recent posts" in the forums on the right-hand side, just a thought
  5. Follow up version to the follow up version ready
  6. Cool! I wonder if there are other stretches of abandoned Transitway remaining today I don't know about
  7. Did ya'll know about the first OC-transpo terminal built in Kanata? Located next to Kanata Town Center, this was the first stretch of Transitway built in Kanata. It was abandoned after the construction of Terry Fox station north of the Highway. It is now used by Ontario Northland as a tiny/useless province-bus service terminal.
  8. Anyone know why they haven't fully opened the Chapman Mills transitway yet? Are they waiting for stage 3 in +10 years to open the remaining stretch and stations?
  9. Looks like South Keys is back being a pink platform :o Just yesterday it looked like this
  10. I don't understand how this part of Line 2 is even going to work anymore. According to the new tracks, any train going South from Bayview will have to wait between Mooney and Walkley until any North-bound trains from Limebank have gone through Walkley + Greenboro + South Keys + the entire length of track up to Leitrim! This is insane...
  11. According to geoOttawa, it looks like the track layout at South Keys has changed. There is no longer a center storage track
  12. Any thoughts/comments on my most recent fantasy (still realist) transit map?
  13. so many Lincoln Fields (aka "Linconn Falds") memories... But it was about time they got rid of this piece of junk station
  14. The idea is really kicking off, seems prominent people are getting interested https://clintondesveaux.medium.com/ottawa-community-leaders-support-bank-street-o-train-tunnel-f95a3116bb85
  15. In the new affordable housing plan http://ottwatch.ca/meetings/file/579067, they raise the possibility of demolishing Bob Mcquarrie to build apartment towers (part of which would fall under the affordable housing project). There's no confirmations of funding or designs, but the land study and analysis is complete. Much the same for the Tom Brown arena near Bayview, also suggested for demolition.
  16. I think there are plans to demolish the existing park-and-ride to build affordable housing units I'm also not a fan of the color, I think it's supposed to be Gold as in "golden line", but they should stick to primary and secondary colors
  17. HAHA is it some kind of weird OCtranspo-Propaganda? 😂
  18. That's what I thought, never saw anything apart that transitway spur on the original TMP diagram
  19. Is there any documentation or studies about the Heron-Walkley Transitway out there?
