While we need a proper LRT, I don't like the current plans. It's also the reason for widening the hyway - to allow a bus lane to repalce the Transitway. Once LRT is going, that lane will be converted to carpool (HA!).
Honestly, one of Ottawa's biggest follies was the green belt which essentially divides suburbia from downtown. Without it the city wouldn't have sprawled across such a wide area and the LRT could actually be long enough to form a useful link.
