Rider tips & safety

First-time riders

If you are a new O-Train rider, please take the time to get familiar with the train's emergency features, which include emergency maps and diagrams, emergency brakes and an intercom system. 

In case of emergency

  • Follow the operator's instructions
  • If you need to speak with the operator in an emergency, such as passenger illness or a disturbance, use the intercom located near each exit door

Station safety

  • Stay clear of the tracks, except at designated pedestrian crossings. At Carleton University, you should cross at the underpass just south of the station.
  • Do not cross when the signals are flashing. The trains are quiet and can approach more quickly than they appear to be travelling.
  • Report vandalism or other transit security issues
    • Call 613-741-2478
    • Use the yellow emergency callbox found in the station shelter
    • Use the free auto-dial button on each payphone to connect to Security

Station platforms are patrolled by Transit Special Constables. If you need help, ask any OC Transpo employee or use a yellow emergency callbox. 


  • On the platform, stay clear of  the yellow platform edge until the train is fully stopped. Do not wait on the extenders.
  • Be sure you have your fare at hand
  • Wait until passengers exit before boarding
  • To open the doors, press the exterior door button when it turns green. Never pry open or hold open the doors


  • Board at the door with the bicycle logo
  • Stay in the designated area next to the door and hold onto your bike


  • The train stops automatically at each station. You do not need to request your stop.
  • When your stop is announced, make your way to an exit. When the green button on the door lights up, press it to open the doors.
  • Watch your step as you exit
