This is a large station, at a campus, and as you will discover, has washrooms, feeding facilities, ticket services, etc. Indoors, the floors were finished with large porcelain tiles. I can’t get a straight answer as to what will be the floor finish for the Confederation Line stations, other than “what RTG decides…”
comfortable seating too:
A welcoming ticket and service wicket:
The opening hours are generous (seven days a week) many transit users are in the service industries which requires them to work shifts and any day of the week. I like that someone took care to be open and available when users want to travel rather than just their stuffed-shirt white-collar hours.
This stairwell wall is sturdy:
But I was surprised that this one was drywall panels, which are inexpensive and not sturdy:
Elevators, of course:
and after hours:
And something you won’t find in any Ottawa transitway stations, and won’t find in any of our new OTrain Confederation or Trillium lines — public washrooms ! What is the French for “gotta go” ?
really nice and clean washrooms:
and yes, that’s a green roof over parts of the station:
next: not all is perfect …
ed note: I mislabelled this station in my original story posting, and revised it to de la Cite. I am note sure if it is a college or sports complex at the location. Another pax there told me it was a cegep, but my french is atrociously bad.
