Ottawans will have a chance to try the city's new light rail Confederation Line for free this Remembrance Day.
On Twitter Tuesday, Mayor Jim Watson said he and Transit Commission Chair Allan Hubley had been looking for "a low-impact, low-cost day for no-charge transit, so residents can come out and try LRT."
The mayor hopes that by providing free service on November 11, it will encourage participation in Remembrance Day ceremonies across the city.
Watson credited River ward City Councillor Riley Brockington and the ByWard Market BIA for the suggestion.
"This will not have a big impact on revenue or the system, as we will have a lot of capacity on our trains. It will also be a great show of support to our veterans," said the mayor.
