I see the ION LRT with Cambridge extension, but what is the other red line? Going east/west?
It's from ROPA 6 (Regional Official Plan Amendment 6). When you go reading it says the following in section 2.D.3.5,
As part of the next update to the Region’s Transportation Master Plan, the Region, in collaboration with the area municipalities, will examine the potential for establishing a new ION rapid transit route along the east-west Regional Intensification Corridor shown on Map 2 that would:
(i) provide a direct link from the Region’s transit system to the Region of Waterloo International Airport; and
(ii) serve as a key transit corridor connecting the west side of the City of Kitchener to the East Side Lands Employment Area in the Township of Woolwich, and City of Cambridge via the Fountain Street corridor
So the region is considering Ottawa as a phase 3 LRT line instead of other potential routes like University or Victoria.
