Rack & Roll

The Rack & Roll program combines biking and transit with ease. Every year from late spring to fall, all OC Transpo buses are equipped with a bike rack.

To help you master the Rack & Roll system, check out the practice bike rack at Hurdman Station!  It will remain in place until later this fall. This brand-new feature is a direct result of a customer’s suggestion.

Keeping you safer

While the use of a cloth mask is no longer required, Ottawa Public Health strongly encourages everyone to wear masks on transit, and in stations and shelters. OC Transpo continues to follow public health advice.
