How will it change my trip?

Smart phone with Travel Planner: How will it change my trip?

Transit trips will change when Line 1 begins operating

O-Train Line 1 will replace most bus routes travelling through downtown, and will provide a quick, reliable connection between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair. Many bus routes are changing to simplify routing and offer convenient connections to the O-Train.


Check the Ready for Rail Travel Planner

Sample days have been added to the Travel Planner using routes and schedules that are planned to operate with O‑Train Line 1. 

 

Please disregard any dates that may appear in the Ready for Rail Travel Planner. These are sample dates only, needed for the Travel Planner to calculate your trip.

STO routes included in trip plans are based on STO’s current service. Schedules and routing are close to those that will be in place when Line 1 is in service but they may change slightly.

In the upcoming weeks, the Ready for Rail Travel Planner will also include a late-night Friday schedule. On Friday nights, O-Train Line 1 service will be extended until 2 am.


Get started

  1. Choose a day of the week.
  2. Enter an origin and destination for your trip and choose a departure time:
