Downtown destinations

Most customers will use the Confederation Line on a daily basis in their transit trips, to get to and from downtown.

Through downtown, the Confederation Line travels underground in a 2.5-km tunnel that stretches from LeBreton Flats to Waller Street.

When you arrive at one of the central stations — Lyon, Parliament or Rideau — you will be protected from the elements as you exit the train onto a modern, underground platform. Escalators and elevators provide an easy connection to street level, and local area maps show the location of nearby destinations.
