We’re excited to share the Travel Training program in a new video produced for OC Transpo by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions. Follow along with Daniel, a past participant in travel training, as he travels around Ottawa from home to work and a night out with friends.

The video is part of the online series The Way We Move, presented by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP).

New devices are being tested on Para Transpo

You may have noticed new tablets on board Para Transpo vehicles recently.

We’re working on bringing new ways to pay to Para Transpo and the first step is having Operators test out the new equipment.

For now, only a few mini buses are part of the test. There is no change to what customers should do or how they should pay.

When we begin to install fare readers on all our Para Transpo vehicles, we’ll share more information about the new ways you can pay for your trip.
