Transportation

 Nestled at the junction of three rolling rivers and bordering the provinces of Québec and Ontario, Ottawa is one of the world’s most beautiful capital cities. Located at a four-hour drive north-east of Toronto and two hours west of Montreal, Ottawa is easy to get to by car or by train at any time of year. The Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport is also located just 20 minutes from downtown Ottawa, offering more than 130 non-stop flights daily to more than 50 destinations in Canada, the United States and European centres out of its state-of-the-art terminal. With so many transportation options available, getting here is easy!

 By Car

The major highways in the Ottawa area are the 417 (also known as the Queensway), 416, 174, 7, 16 and 31 in Ontario; and the 148, 50 and 5 in Quebec. When heading east on the 417, the point in which the lanes split into two directions (one continues east, the other becomes the 174) is commonly known as ‘The Split’.

The speed limit on major highways (417, 416, 174) is 100 km/h (approximately 60 mph). The limit on other highways (7, 16, 31) and most rural areas is 80 km/h (50 mph). In the city, the speed limit is generally 50 km/h (30 mph) unless otherwise stated. The limit on the 148 in Quebec varies between 50, 70, and 90 km/h.

Many streets in Ottawa, especially downtown, are one-way. Be aware of signs (a white arrow on a black background) that indicate a one-way street.

Some Ottawa streets have adopted second names. For example, Preston Street is also known as Corso Italia, and Gladstone Avenue is also called Via Marconi.

In Ontario and Quebec (except Montreal), drivers are permitted to turn right on a red light unless otherwise stated.

Many major roadways (called the Transitway) in Ottawa are dedicated to OC Transpo buses only. These are marked with a diamond in the lane and/or a sign above the lane. Do not drive in these lanes.

 By Train

Convenient, comfortable and affordable, Canada’s passenger train service – VIA Rail – is a great travel choice that offers numerous daily departures to Ottawa from all major cities in southern Ontario and southern Quebec. Ottawa’s Central Station is just minutes east of downtown, and a satellite VIA Rail station is located to the west of the city at Fallowfield-Barrhaven.
