OC Transpo making it easier for people with guide dogs to travel on public transit

This bus will find its new home at CNIB’s Canine Campus, which is a 158-acre rural property and the national training facility for CNIB Guide Dogs. Pictured are left to right: Miriam Mas (CNIB), OC Transpo Accessibility Specialist, Kathy Riley, OC Transpo General Manager, Renée Amilcar, Ben Francis (CNIB) and Shona Kemp (CNIB).

A decommissioned OC Transpo bus is on its way to CNIB’s Canine Campus in Carleton Place, creating a new life and purpose for a bus that once transported thousands of customers across Ottawa. After many years in service, this bus will now help CNIB Guide Dog Trainers enable future guide dogs to learn the procedures for boarding, traveling, and exiting public transit.

Mid-winter service changes: Routes 11, 40, 51, 153, and 699

Route 40: All-day service reinstated on Tapiola Crescent. Route 40 will no longer bypass Tapiola Crescent to continue straight on Johnston Road during off-peak hours.

Routes 11, 51, 153: With construction complete at Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre, Routes 11, 51, and 153 will be permanently adjusted to use the mall's new East-West roadway from Croydon Avenue.  

Route 699: Routing will be adjusted to continue on Kelly Farm Drive to Bradwell Way. This change reduces walking distances for students east of Kelly Farm Drive, between Bradwell Way and Findlay Creek Drive.

We’re introducing a Severe Storm Schedule this winter

This winter, we are piloting a special Severe Storm Schedule for buses on weekdays. It will be in effect when 31 cm or more of snow is expected.

On weekdays, bus service will be based on a Saturday schedule. Adjustments to bus types that are in operation will be made.

O-Train Line 1 and Para Transpo service will not be reduced.

Customers will be notified a day in advance. The best and most reliable way to be in the know is to sign up for My Alerts.

As we introduce a Severe Storm Schedule pilot this winter, OC Transpo will gather data to measure its success. This will help to determine if the schedule should become permanent every winter.
