Project Spotlight: Stage 2 Emergency Responder Training

The O-Train System will soon allow you to take a train as far as Riverside South on Line 2 and to the Ottawa International Airport on Line 4.

On October 31, OC Transpo was joined by first responders at the airport for a unique training exercise to test emergency training, plans, and procedures. This was a critical milestone to ensure our team, City services and our partners are ready to safely operate the new system when it opens to the public.

To find out more, we caught up with the Rail Construction Program’s Security Consultant, Peter, to learn about the training exercise and how it will help to ensure we are prepared for emergency situations leading up to the launch of Line 2 and Line 4.

This increase was approved by Council as part of the 2024 Budget.The prices of the EquiPass, Community Pass and Access Pass remain frozen for 2024. Kids aged 12 and under ride free every day!

We rely on fares to keep our city moving. Your fares help pay for buses, fuel, employee wages, bus shelters, system improvements and much more. Thank you for supporting the transit system by paying your fare.
