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. All trips will operate via Tapiola Crescent and service the bus stops along the street. Customers will no longer need to walk to Johnston Road to board the bus during off-peak. 

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.
