Para Transpo is a shared-ride, book-in-advance, public transit service. The service is open to eligible customers who are unable to take conventional transit (buses and O-Train) some or all of the time due to a disability. It is funded by the City of Ottawa and administered by OC Transpo.

Para Transpo provides minibus and contracted taxi services in Ottawa’s urban communities. We also provide service between urban and rural areas and to Hull (in Gatineau).

Para Transpo buses can hold:

  • Wheelchairs up to 30 inches (762 mm) wide by 60 inches (1525 mm) long
