New Ways to Bus

Frequent. Local. Connected.

Overview


New ways to bus are coming to Ottawa! OC Transpo's new bus network will focus on frequency, local service in your neighbourhood, and connections to key destinations.

New Ways to Bus includes more than 100 routes and is planned to launch following the opening of O-Train Lines 2 and 4 in the south, opening up new convenient connections across the city. Every neighbourhood and most customers will see changes to their trip.

The new network is a key part of OC Transpo’s 5-Year Roadmap and is based on the results of the 2023 Bus Route Review. New Ways to Bus meets the Council-approved Transit Services budget. It is a big step towards our goal of increasing bus service reliability to 99.5 per cent, alongside the Bus Maintenance Action Plan and ongoing employee recruitment efforts.

Your new bus network


This new bus network of more than 100 routes will ensure that our city has a sustainable network that meets the evolving needs of our customers:

  • 27 Frequent routes that run seven days a week, including every 15 minutes or less during the weekdays.
  • 58 Local routes designed to take you to neighbourhood destinations and transit hubs where you can connect with Frequent routes and the extended O-Train network.
  • 17 Connexion routes that provide fast, peak-period connections to the O-Train.

New Ways to Bus Travel Planner

Sample days containing  New Ways to Bus routes and schedules are now in the  New Ways to Bus Travel Planner!

What's changing?


You will see a shift from downtown-focused bus routes to routes that improve connections to community hubs and key destinations.

Some customers may have to go further to the bus stop, have additional transfers to buses or trains, and/or have faster travel times.

In addition to fewer Connexion routes, some routes will be retired due to low ridership and to improve connections to new routes and the O-Train. Retired routes will be replaced with alternative service nearby.

At this time, there will be no changes to existing 300-series Shopper routes and 400-series Event routes. In some instances, there may be changes to 600-series School routes. These changes will result in comparable service for students and will not impact the current school year. Please keep checking the website for updates on 600-series and Night routes.

Bus route symbol and colours, also known as service types, will be updated to reflect the New Ways to Bus network:

Current New
 

The Rapid Route service type (blue circle) will be removed.

 

 

The new symbol for Frequent routes will be a blue hexagon. As a core part of the New Ways to Bus network, service will continue to:

  • Be every 15 minutes or less from 6 am to 6 pm on weekdays
  • Run 7 days a week along main roads

Map of the new Frequent routes network

 

Local service will continue to provide custom routing to local destinations. Many local routes are being redesigned to better serve neighbourhood destinations and transit hubs where you can connect with Frequent routes and the extended O-Train network.

 

Connexion routes will provide quick, convenient connections to O-Train.

  • Will continue to run weekday mornings and afternoons, during rush-hours.

On-street signage

In the coming weeks, you may begin to notice changes to signs or maps at bus stops. This change is to prepare for the launch of our New Ways to Bus network. With thousands of bus stops requiring changes, we need to begin updating this information early so it’s ready in time for the launch of the new bus network.

Signs and maps for the new bus network will be covered or have stickers and notices to indicate that they aren’t in effect yet. Covered signs will be unveiled right before the new network comes into effect.

How can I learn more?


We recognize the importance of reaching all our customers. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll:

  • Publish more information to our website, such as details on special Night, Summer, and School Service, route maps, and neighbourhood maps.
  • Boost awareness through social media, paid advertising, and signage at bus stops.
  • Include detailed schedules in the Travel Planner.
  • Do outreach and provide info sessions in various communities.

Community Bus

OC Transpo’s Community Bus is hitting the streets of Ottawa, visiting neighbourhoods and events throughout the city to share information about the future New Ways to Bus network. When visiting the Community Bus, you can:

  • Speak with OC Transpo staff.
  • View future network and route maps.
  • Learn more about changes coming to the bus network.  

Everyone is welcome!

Stay tuned for future event dates and locations.

Keep an eye out for our Zero Emission Bus (ZEB).

Why have we redesigned the bus network?

OC Transpo's current bus network was designed to carry 100 million passengers each year. However, with recent ridership trends, we are currently on track to carry 70 to 75 million customer-trips in 2024.

In response to significant changes in ridership and in preparation for the opening of O-Train Lines 2 and 4, we have been working to ensure a frequent, local, and connected bus network. Visit the pages below to discover the work behind New Ways to Bus.

The Next Stop Blog

Our newest blog series – Your Future Journey, will help guide you through the upcoming changes to the bus network and answer your burning questions. Get a sneak-peek into what public transit will look like in different neighbourhoods once the new network is available.

What's behind your future journey?

2023 Bus Route Review

Customer feedback and consultation was at the forefront of the review. We distributed multilingual surveys, facilitated multiple open houses, consulted major employers and post-secondary institutions, and gathered feedback from OC Transpo employees.

How did we review our bus network?
