How will I transfer?

The O-Train Confederation Line and its stations have been designed to make your connections quick, easy and comfortable. Customers connecting from bus to train or train to bus at major stations along the Confederation Line —Hurdman, Blair, Tunney’s Pasture and Bayview— will transfer directly within a fare-paid zone, which will allow customers to bypass the fare gates. Frequent train arrivals and coordinated schedules between trains and buses mean you won’t have to wait long to continue your journey. Learn more about the Confederation Line on our new Ready for Rail web section »
