TIN news:         The OC Transpo's O-Train Trillium Line in Canada has resumed operations after a $60.3m expansion project, providing a more comfortable, convenient and reliable transit service.
 
With these improvements, the service will be expanded from two trains to four trains with six new Alstom Coradia Lint trains.
 
Passengers will benefit from more frequent services, reduced waiting times, increased capacity and better travel connections.
"The new trains will meet the demand of growing ridership to and from the south end of Ottawa now and well into the future."
 
Mayor Jim Watson said: "The completion of the O-Train Trillium Line Expansion project demonstrates our city's continued commitment to providing safe, reliable and efficient transit service.
 
"The new trains will meet the demand of growing ridership to and from the south end of Ottawa now and well into the future."
 
Alstom's new trains will be quiet and more fuel-efficient than the previous trains and the vehicles will be capable of accommodating up to 260 passengers.
 
The new passing tracks near Brookfield and Gladstone will allow the O-Train Trillium Line to serve more people through providing services with four cars at a time.
 
In addition to the new trains, renovations have been made to the signalling system, train controls, stations, tracks and train yard.
 
The safety and efficiency on the line have been improved with the installation of Centralized Traffic Control system, while the passenger information systems along with security cameras and passenger counters offer better service to passengers.
