Federal, provincial and municipal officials gathered near Cyrville Station on December 2, 2016, for a photo opportunity with the first light rail vehicle to be assembled in Ottawa.

Testing will be ongoing until 2018, giving residents many opportunities to see the trains on the test track between Blair and Tremblay stations initially, and later along the whole alignment.
