How will I get to it?

Passengers arriving at a train station

Bus, bike, walk, ride

  • Direct bus service to the train from every neighbourhood
  • Bicycle storage in stations

O-Train Confederation Line stations will bring a Confederation Line connection to every community, whether you are:

  • Connecting from a bus route or the O-Train Trillium Line
  • Arriving by bike or on foot from nearby pathways or local sidewalks and bike lanes
  • Using a mobility device
  • Being dropped off by car or taxi


Many customers will travel by bus to connect with the O-Train Confederation Line.

More than 100 different bus routes will connect to Confederation Line stations. You can ride a Rapid or Connexion bus route from a suburban or rural Park & Ride lot, or catch a Connexion route at a bus stop close to home. In many neighbourhoods Local routes will also provide a direct connection to the train. Sixteen Park & Ride lots and every residential area will have at least one direct bus route to the Confederation Line.

  • 11 Rapid routes
  • 17 Frequent routes
  • 36 Connexion routes
  • 48 Local routes


People approaching from a distance will see an illuminated red O symbol mounted on a post (“pylon”) and a lantern box at each entrance identifying the station-name. The O is also repeated on back-lit station-name signs above the doorways.

All stations have been designed with cycling connections and bicycle parking. Within stations, signage will direct you to nearby multi-use pathways, and bike “runnels” will let you easily walk your bike up and down the stairs.

Bicycle signage for O-Train boarding

Bicycle boarding

Bicycles will be permitted in the first car of every train, in the shared Cooperative Seating section. When boarding trains with your bicycle, you will wait in the green marked area on the platform, and then board by the first door at the front of the train.

Bicycle racks are available on buses from late April until late October. The Rack & Roll program continues to be available for riders transferring between bus and train.


If you are getting a lift by car, most Confederation Line stations will have on-street vehicle access in the vicinity of the station entrance. Hurdman and Tunney’s Pasture stations will have clearly marked passenger pick-up and drop-off spots nearby or on site for safe and convenient station access. Suburban residents can also Park & Ride at one of 16 lots across the city and catch an all-day Rapid route to the closest Confederation Line station. Rural residents can park at one of 10 rural Park & Ride lots and catch a Connexion route to the closest Confederation Line station.

VIA Rail passengers arriving at Ottawa Station can take advantage of a covered pedestrian connection to Tremblay Station to comfortably transfer to the Confederation Line.
