How will I get to it?

Passengers arriving at a train station

Bus, bike, walk, ride

  • Direct bus service to the train from every neighbourhood
  • Bicycle storage in stations

O-Train Confederation Line stations will bring a Confederation Line connection to every community, whether you are:

  • Connecting from a bus route or the O-Train Trillium Line
  • Arriving by bike or on foot from nearby pathways or local sidewalks and bike lanes
  • Using a mobility device
  • Being dropped off by car or taxi


Many customers will travel by bus to connect with the O-Train Confederation Line.

More than 100 different bus routes will connect to Confederation Line stations. You can ride a Rapid or Connexion bus route from a suburban or rural Park & Ride lot, or catch a Connexion route at a bus stop close to home. In many neighbourhoods Local routes will also provide a direct connection to the train. Sixteen Park & Ride lots and every residential area will have at least one direct bus route to the Confederation Line.

  • 11 Rapid routes
  • 17 Frequent routes
  • 38 Connexion routes
  • 43 Local routes


People approaching from a distance will see an illuminated red O symbol mounted on a post (“pylon”) and a lantern box at each entrance identifying the station-name. The O is also repeated on back-lit station-name signs above the doorways.

All stations have been designed with cycling connections and bicycle parking. Within stations, signage will direct you to nearby multi-use pathways, and bike “runnels” will let you easily walk your bike up and down the stairs.


If you are getting a lift by car, most Confederation Line stations will have on-street vehicle access in the vicinity of the station entrance. Hurdman and Tunney’s Pasture stations will have clearly marked passenger pick-up and drop-off spots nearby or on site for safe and convenient station access. Suburban residents can also Park & Ride at one of 16 lots across the city and catch an all-day Rapid route to the closest Confederation Line station. Rural residents can park at one of 10 rural Park & Ride lots and catch a Connexion route to the closest Confederation Line station.

VIA Rail passengers arriving at Ottawa Station can take advantage of a covered pedestrian connection to Tremblay Station to comfortably transfer to the Confederation Line.
