Spring service starts April 22

Spring service bannerNew schedules will go into effect on many routes on Sunday, April 22. We are also making a few changes to help us get Ready for Rail. Route 23 will travel on City Park and Ogilvie adding service to government offices near Blair Station. Some trips on Routes 96 and 99 will be renumbered.

Schedule changes

We’re adjusting the schedules of the following routes:

  • Line 2 (O-Train Trillium Line) and Routes 4, 11, 85, 99, 104, 111 and 129
  • School trips on Routes 12, 24, 82 and 649

Spring Route Schedules and new Travel Plans are now available!

Routing and numbering changes

Service will be increased to every 15 minutes early weekday mornings. Weekend service will run every 15 minutes along the full route. The new schedule will better match ridership levels. Higher capacity buses will be used on busier trips.

Better Bus Stops project bannerWe’re redistributing stops on St. Laurent Blvd., between Elmvale and Walkley. These changes will make trips on Routes 40, 48 and 49 faster, smoother and more reliable. We want to know what you think about the new stop locations and how they affect your trips.

96

Trips renumbered

Routes 96 and 186Route 96 trips between Merivale/Slack and Lincoln Fields  will become Route 186.

99

Trips renumbered

The Route 99 trips to/from Manotick will become Route 299.

161

The last southbound trip currently ending at Stonehaven and Bridlewood at 12:40 am will be extended to complete the loop along Bridlewood and Steeplechase. This will reduce walking distances.

283, 301

Later this spring, service will be detoured around construction work on Richmond Bridge. You will need to give yourself extra travel time. Until the detour begins, buses will continue to follow their current routing.

Rack & Roll is back!

We’re installing bike racks on many buses. Buses operating on the following routes will be equipped with a rack:

  • Routes 12, 61, 62, 85, 88, 91, 94, 95, 97, 98, 99, 101, and 106
  • You can also bring your bike onboard the O-Train year-round.

To plan a trip using only routes with a bike rack or the O-Train, turn on the “Rack & Roll” option in the Travel Planner. Rack & Roll travel plans are only available for Spring Service dates.
