The Stations

Lincoln Fields (2025)

Station Information provided by the City of Ottawa

Lincoln Fields Station is an existing Transitway Station that will be re-oriented and completely rebuilt to function as a new LRT station. The train platform will be located under Carling Avenue with a fare paid connection to the bus facility to allow passengers to transfer seamlessly without a requirement to pass through fare gates or revalidate their fare.

There will be a minimum of three fare-controlled entrances: a station entrance will be provided from Carling Avenue; an entrance will provide access from the west side of the Guideway at grade; and, an entrance will be provided at the bus loop. The existing bus terminal will be reconfigured to accommodate bus platforms and bus layby facilities only, and a new bus drivers' facility. The PPUDO spaces currently located within the operating area of the bus terminal will be relocated and segregated from the fare paid zone with access from Carling Avenue, shared with buses as currently configured. This major transfer station will be outfitted with public washrooms available to fare paid customers during LRT operation hours and will have provisions for a future retail space. A signalized pedestrian crossing will also be provided to facilitate improved station access across Carling Avenue.

the City has the opportunity to make this city more beautiful. instead they are choosing a bland grey/white/glass design.
under the guise of "modern" "minimalism", the City chooses to erect a soulless artless slab of steel and glass. it's sickening.
new projects should beautify a city, not add blankness and ugly.

See glass can be lovely when well done. But I agree seems like glass is often used as a placeholder for lack of architectural vision. I get it a 19th c. public building would look gaudy if built today and not work with modern day aesthetics, but that doesn't mean we should just glass everything. Like at the very least using various woods to give it an association with pioneer reliance on wood as a building material but make it look modern. Let Stations represent the community building styles, aesthetics, and vision.

Looks like Tunneys... lets not build this again. It's a horrible design from architects that think precipitation falls straight down. The platform needs to be sheltered, not the part where nobody stands above... the part above also doesn't need doors... A low lying design without a fancy roof is fine, people are waiting to go somewhere not take a picture with it. Just keep us warm and out of the elements. Transit is bad enough, it's worse when you're stuck outside waiting for longer than is promised - every time you take it.

My big issue with current lineup of LRT stations is they are build for mild climate like the Southern US or central California. At uOttawa check out on the end of the platform going west, and you will notice a seating area just beyond any coverage by the roof. So if you have some sort of disability where sitting is helpful over standing guess you gonna have to sit in the rain.
