Welcome to our Virtual Museum

The year 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of public transit operation in Ottawa. From streetcars that were once pulled by horses to the modern, air-conditioned, red and white transit fleet that you see all around our nation’s capital, we’ve come a long way!

Over the past 150 years, through thick and thin, transit has been there to keep us moving.
