Moose Inc’s primary activity through 2013/2014 has been to seek professional and public review of our adaptation of the Property-Powered Railway Open Development Model to the Greater National Capital Region. We have pursued this through direct discussions with experts in industry associations, in companies, amongst potential investors, and with academics. We are testing the logic of our approach with professionals and academics inside and outside the region. And we have met with professional staff and elected officials in the federal government, and in municipal governments, large and small, across this extensive region. That’s to say, we’ve been quietly doing our homework on what we think will be a truly positive and fundamental game-changer for both economic development and overall lifestyle throughout the Greater National Capital Region.

Please consider how you can help assemble companies and real property investors to develop a station, whether you’re from Kanata or Barrhaven, Alexandria or La Pêche, Smiths Falls or The Pontiac, or any of the other places that exiting infrastructure will take Moose Rail. Your can read our Property-Powered Rail white paper to understand the business model.
Be sure to let your elected representatives and municipal staff know how your station in particular, and how whole-region transit integration generally, will benefit people of your area.
The team at Moose Inc would love to hear from you, and we will be happy to assist where we can with each station development team’s efforts, though respectfully we will not take any positions in the local affairs of neighbourhoods and communities.
