Confederation Line aiming to open in September 2019
Today, Mayor Jim Watson and senior city staff, met with the CEO of Alstom (Henri Poupart-Lafarge) and the CEO of Rideau Transit Group (Peter Lauch) to discuss the current status of the Confederation Line.
After the meeting, the Mayor shared the good news that Alstom will have the trains completed by July 7th. RTG will then be able to handover the system to the city on the 2nd or 3rd week of August. Following this, OC Transpo will require approximately 4 weeks to finalize training and preparations before the line opens to passengers in September 2019.
The next Confederation Line update will take place at FEDCO on July 10th at 9:30am.
