I was wondering if Ottawa is a good city to drive in. For someone staying downtown or in the area, would a car be unnecessary? Would walking or transit be sufficient? Also, is street parking or parking downtown available? Are there any free parking spots?
Do people usually drive to work or transit (if they worked downtown, like the Tunney Pasture area)?
For example, in Vancouver and Toronto, I find most people transit or walk to work and very few drive and park because it is not only congested traffic-wise but parking is very expensive, if at all available.
Thanks in advance!
