"Nichols pointed out that the Brampton Zum Bus Rapid Transit, Mississauga Bus Rapid Transitway, Waterloo Region LRT and Ottawa LRT projects include some municipal funding. The Waterloo and Ottawa LRT projects are outside the Metrolinx mandate area and predate its establishment in 2006."

For example:

"The city is receiving $600 million from the province for the $2.1 billion light rail transit project. The city is also getting $600 million from the federal government for the project.

The 12.5 kilometre rail line LRT project includes a 3.2-kilometre tunnel to run between LeBreton Flats and the University of Ottawa campus, with four underground stops."

The rail line is slated to be operational by mid-2018.

Again, important to note that this predates Metrolinx.
