OC Explained: Implementing R1 replacement bus service
When O-Train Line 1 isn’t running, R1 replacement bus service is activated to help keep our city moving.
O-Train Line 1 is capable of moving 10,700 passengers per hour, each way. Our two-car trains can comfortably move 600 passengers.
Our transit system has been designed to take full advantage of this. OC Transpo’s bus network brings customers from all areas of the city to O-Train stations.
