LINKED: Moodie LRT station won’t have park and ride because there’s no room

From the Ottawa Citizen:

West-end commuters won’t be able to ditch their cars at the future Moodie LRT station and ride the rails to downtown Ottawa.

There simply isn’t enough room near the station to build a park-and-ride facility, according to a report on the Stage 2 transit expansion.

Council had asked staff to see if a park and ride could be built at Moodie station, which will become one of the western terminuses of the Confederation Line LRT in 2023.

The report says a parking deck would likely be required because of the space constraints. The structure could become obsolete when the city extends LRT to Kanata in a future Stage 3. Plus, a parking facility would inappropriately encourage car traffic across the Greenbelt, the report says.

  1. “Plus, a parking facility would inappropriately encourage car traffic across the Greenbelt, the report says.” The rest of this ridiculous statement would be ” and the Eagleson Park and Ride is just a short walk away ….”
