Moose Advances Passenger Rail for the Entire National Capital Region
Ottawa, 29 June, 2016: Today a private sector consortium of twelve companies applied to the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) seeking federal government authorization to proceed with the development of a 400 km inter-provincial passenger rail service throughout Canada's Greater National Capital Region.
The plan has no dependence upon government subsidies, public debt, or taxes. It will increase the region’s sustainability, and will provide additional convenient, low-cost, low- carbon transport options for urban, suburban and rural populations.
Founded in 2015, Moose Consortium's name is a bilingual acronym for “Mobility Ottawa- Outaouais: Systems & Enterprises” and “Mobilité Outaouais-Ottawa : Systèmes & entreprises”.
Member firms include one of the region's most respected civil engineering companies, REMISZ Consulting Engineers, as well as MTBA Architects which has long been one of the most prominent Architecture, Urbanism & Conservation firms in the Capital. Aon Reed Stenhouse Inc. (AON), Canada's largest insurance and risk management service firm, is Moose's insurer of record. Health and safety management planning is led by Dr. Bill Pomfret & Associates, an internationally recognized industrial safety specialist.
