Every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday Monday this summer, 8 am to 4 pm, parkways in the heart of Ottawa and nearby Gatineau Park are closed to motor vehicles and open for cyclists and pedestrians.
NCC Weekend Bikedays, presented by NOKIA are running now until Monday, October 11.
We will be detouring routes 57, 61, 62, 63, 74, 75, 83, and 87 (westbound only) around the Parkway as a result of this closure.
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.
If you have a scheduled appointment to get your COVID-19 vaccine, OC Transpo can get you there! Use the Travel Planner to plan your trip to any of the community clinics located across the city.
Please check Ottawa Public Health for information and updates on the COVID‑19 vaccine and distribution plan.
Montréal Road will close in the eastbound direction from St-Laurent Boulevard to the Vanier Parkway for the Montréal Road Revitalization Project. The eastbound lane of Montréal Road is expected to reopen in 2022.
Buses that run eastbound on Montréal Road will be detoured though Vanier during the closure.
