Winter service changes

Winter service starts Sunday, December 25, 2022

  • Holiday service (December 26, 2022 to January 6, 2023) will operate on a reduced schedule to reflect lower ridership during the holidays.
  • Route 62 will be modified to bring service closer to businesses on weekends.
  • Select trips on School Route 671 servicing John McCrae Secondary School will be extended to Apolune Street.
  • The Rack & Roll winter pilot is happening again this winter! This time, all OC Transpo buses will be equipped with a bike rack.

NEW this winter:

Severe Storm Schedule will be piloted 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, with limited early morning service and weekday-only routes. O-Train Line 1 and Para Transpo service will not be reduced.

Travel training takes the spotlight

OC Transpo’s Travel Training program has been teaching people with disabilities and seniors to use transit safely and independently since 2003.

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).
