Bus stop changes
At Place d'Orléans Station, bus stops are changing to reduce platform crowding and to group neighbourhood routes together at one stop.
Routes in the 600-series going to these schools will be affected:
- Limited Local Route 634 to Mer Bleue High School
- Limited Local Route 635 to Cairine Wilson Secondary School
- Limited Local Route 636 to Sir Wilfrid Laurier High School

634, 635, 636, 638, 639, 678
New routing to Carleton University
In early October, an extension of Raven Road to connect with Bronson Avenue is expected to be completed. Routes 10, 111, and Line 2 bus will take this new route when servicing Carleton University. These routes will use the bus-only roadway from Raven Road when travelling between Bronson Road and the campus. Until then, the routes will operate on detour, accessing Campus via University Drive.
This routing adjustment reduces travel times and improves service reliability on these routes.
More information coming soon.
Work on Ottawa roads and bridges continues into the fall and could lead to service delays and detours. Check the Alerts page for a full list of ongoing and planned detours.
