Stage 2 LRT - Get Involved - Share your Snapshot Updates
The O-Train Fans Snapshot Updates are our way of documenting, archiving and sharing the history of the O-Train station construction sites.
Over the coming years, we wish to continue this important project which also helps to inform citizens and residents of the work and progress being made at all of the station work sites. As the territory that the new extensions cover stretches across most of the city, O-Train Fans has developed a plan to enhance our coverage which would increase the frequency of updates.
The answer... our loyal rail fans and followers!
We want you to be part of this important time in Ottawa's history, by volunteering your time in helping us visit the station sites, taking photos of what is going on.
All you need is a camera or smartphone to take photos.
Please note that a Snapshot Update needs to have a minimum of 3 photos to be accepted.
Depending on the level of interest of people wanting to participate, there are two ways to help.
- Helping to provide snapshot updates for a larger region (Multi-Station).
- Helping to provide snapshot updates for single stations (One Station).
Updates can be done whenever you have time, and even multi-station can be spread over several days or weeks.
As part of Stage 2 LRT, here are the stations to be covered, as well as suggested groupings if you choose to join our project by submitting multiple stations.
LINE 1 (CONFDERATION LINE)
- Jeanne d'Arc
- Orleans Blvd
- Place d'Orleans
- New Orchard
- Lincoln Fields
LINE 2 (TRILLIUM LINE)
- Bayview (Line 2)
- South Keys
