Discussing the Gatineau Tramway with Maude Marquis-Bissonnette, Mayoral Candidate - July 2021

The Gatineau Tramway, proposed for the west-end of the city, will transform public transit, most notably in the Plateau and Aylmer sectors, which currently do not have any rapid transit offered. 

In this video discussion with Maude Marquis-Bissonnette (Mayoral Candidate, Leader of Action Gatineau, and councillor for Plateau), we discuss the tramway project, the eventual rapibus conversion, the tramway insertion into Ottawa, and the 6th crossing between Gatineau-Ottawa.
