                                   systems capacity to providing Bus Rapid Transit through the downtown to serve surrounding communities.

                                   In November 2008, after input from tens of thousands of Ottawa residents, the City of Ottawa finalized a
                                   Transportation Master Plan, adopted overwhelmingly by City Council. This plan sets a bold vision to 2031
                                   for world class public transit in the Nation's capital that will make the City more economically,
                                   environmentally and socially sustainable.

                                   The cornerstone and first phase of this plan is to run light rail transit from Tunney's Pasture Station to Blair
                                   Station along the Transitway and through twin tunnels underneath the downtown core. With $1.2 billion in
                                   announced funding from the Federal and Provincial governments, this $2.1 billion 9-year project is on track to
                                   deliver many benefits to the residents of the City of Ottawa.

                                           Cuts the number of buses in the downtown by half.                                                             Reduces average commute time by 15 minutes.
                                           Provides opportunity to dramatically change the downtown core and make                                        Meets Ottawa's projected transit demand to 2031 and beyond.
