What we do

Our mandate is to deliver safe, reliable, and courteous service at an affordable price with minimal environmental impact. Together, we can decrease the number of vehicles on our roads and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

To achieve these goals, we develop and maintain transit services and programs in collaboration with the City of Ottawa and our riders.


The Confederation and Trillium Lines are the fastest way to travel across Ottawa. Trains operate all day with departures every 5 minutes or less during peak times. From the train station, transfer to a local bus to complete your journey.

Quick facts:

  • First section opened in 2001
  • 13 new stations open along the Confederation Line in 2019

Capital Railway Three Year Plan


The Transitway is a road system connecting riders across Ottawa to the O-Train network. Only open to OC Transpo and emergency vehicles, the Transitway is unaffected by regular traffic delays.

Quick facts:

  • First sections opened in 1983
  • Over 1.5 billion riders since opening

Park & Ride

Dozens of parking lots are available across Ottawa and nearby rural communities to support commuters. Escape the stress of traffic and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by parking at the lot nearest you and travelling by bus or O-Train.

Quick facts:

  • Over 9,000 parking spaces
  • All Park & Ride lots are serviced by Rapid or Connexion routes

Safety & Accessibility

The security and dignity of our riders and employees is very important to us. We work with the City of Ottawa and local groups to ensure that everyone has a safe and accessible transit experience.

Quick facts:

  • Special Constables patrol 24 hours a day
  • All buses, trains, and stations are built for accessibility
