Coming soon to Blackburn Hamlet... OC Transpo On-Demand!
Hey Blackburn Hamlet, soon we’ll be launching OC Transpo On-Demand, an on-demand transit pilot project that will replace Route 28 on weekends and select holidays.
On-demand transit uses technology to create responsive transit service based on customers trip requests instead of traditional fixed routes and schedules. Customers will be able to book same-day and next-day trips between existing Route 28 bus stops and at Blair Station and the Gloucester Centre.
During the pilot project, OC Transpo On-Demand will run from 7 am to midnight on Saturdays and 9 am to 6:30 pm on Sundays.
Route 28 will continue to operate on weekdays when OC Transpo On-Demand is not in service.
Service improvements and seasonal adjustments for various routes.
School service resumes August 29 for French schools and September 5 for English schools.
NEW school routes added: Routes 677 and 679 serving St. Joseph High School and Routes 682 and 683 serving Cedarview Middle School.
Weekend service to summer destinations ends Monday, September 4.
Bus and train service
On weekdays, service on O-Train Line 1 during peak periods will operate every five mins. On weekends, service will operate every ten minutes. The Shuttle Express service that began on August 15, 2023, will continue to operate as an alternative to O-Train Line 1.
