Service alerts currently in effect:
Starting June 20, we’re making temporary changes to bus routes across the city in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
These adjustments also reflect seasonal changes in ridership and the changing needs of our customers.
From Thursday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 30, O-Train Line 1 service will end each night at 7 pm to perform seasonal track maintenance.
This work will result in better train service for customers. Full O-Train Line 1 service will resume at 5 am on weekdays, 6 am on Saturdays, and 8 am on Sundays.
At the start of service on Monday, June 21, STO services in downtown Ottawa will change to improve transit service between Ottawa and Gatineau.
Major connection points for OC Transpo and STO service will be at Lyon, Parliament, and Mackenzie King Stations.
The OC Transpo Customer Service Centre in the Rideau Centre will reopen on Friday, June 11 by appointment only.
Use these alternatives to purchase your fare:
The Happy Goat cafés in Rideau and Blair Stations are now open! In the coming weeks, Happy Goat Coffee locations are set to open in two more Line 1 stations: Hurdman and Tunney's Pasture.

Starting May 12, all Para Transpo customers can book next-day trips between 7 am and 5 pm on the day prior to their trip. Any customer can call at any time between 7 am and 5 pm.
Para Transpo customers can also use the online trip reservation form as a quick self-serve option for next-day or Statutory Holiday bookings.
Starting in late April, permanent operator barriers are being installed on OC Transpo's bus fleet. Over 750 articulated, double-decker, and 40-foot buses will be equipped with an operator barrier by the end of August 2021.
Operator barriers, also known as shields, improve the workplace safety of our bus operators and enhance the overall safety of our customers.
