Photographer's Note

OC Transpo is Ottawa's public transit system, which includes light rail, paratransit and over 1000 buses.

As with many public transit systems, many Ottawans like to complain about the service. A couple of hot issues in the past few years was a two month strike in the dead of winter (2008-2009) and ongoing delays with implementing an electronic card payment system (which was finally fully released last month after an initial launch date of July 2012).

Even so, Ottawa's system is pretty good all in all. It covers a wide area of the national capital region, there are a number of good express routes and the bus schedule is reasonably reliable.

Finally, a note on the Ottawa skyline: the glass building on the far right is a relatively new addition to the city. The building is the new Ottawa Convention Centre, which opened in April 2011.
