VRTUCAR Car Sharing was established in Ottawa in 2000, with one car and four members. Today, this thriving local business has grown into a reliable transportation network, serving 1,800 members with over 100 fuel-efficient cars located in Ottawa and Gatineau. VrtuCar has a station in the heart of Chinatown, under the royal arch at 687 Somerset Street.
Walking, Biking & Scooters
Strategically located in the center of the Ottawa-Gatineau capital region, Chinatown is within walking distance from downtown Ottawa and Parliament Hill especially on a nice day. It is a pleasant walk from many downtown hotels to discover this multicultural village with an Asian flavour.
There are many bike parking racks in Chinatown. Riding Scooters will also get you to Chinatown!
