About the portal

The Public Transit in Ottawa portal is designed to serve as a hub bringing together the latest news, notes, and comments about Ottawa's public transit system. The intent of PTIO is not necessarily to provide recommendations to city planners, but rather to offer some analysis of the issues and highlight key areas that require further reflection and discourse as well as a place for interested citizens to congregate and discuss these issues. Hopefully, over time, it will help Ottawans become engaged and involved in the decision-making process municipally.

Above the website, Public Transit in Ottawa has published a community-reviewed journal, the Journal of Public Transit in Ottawa. The 44-page Winter 2008-09 issue spans a variety of many different subjects, JPTO is available for download below.
