The City of Ottawa has initiated the preliminary design of the Cumberland Transitway from Innes Road to Tenth Line Road.
With the ongoing development of the East Urban Community, a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route is being planned to address growing transit needs. This preliminary design incorporates four transit stations at the following locations:
- Chapel Hill (Orleans Boulevard Extension), complete with a grade separation of Orleans Boulevard Extension crossing over the Transitway
- An at-grade station at future Belcourt Boulevard where it will cross the Cumberland Transitway at grade
- A grade-separated overpass of the Transitway by Mer Bleue Road, incorporating a station adjacent to the bridge structure
- A grade separation at Tenth Line Road with the Transitway crossing over Tenth Line Road. A transit station will also be placed at this location for both local buses as well as Transitway buses
