The OC Transpo summer schedule is in effect. The new schedule includes several changes, including weekend service to local museums and realignment of the Transitway between Campus and Laurier Stations for construction of the Confederation Line Light Rail.
New schedules will reflect the lower demand for service during the summer vacation period. School routes will be suspended until the fall, and there will be minor schedule reductions on mainline and peak period routes. New schedules are available at OCTranspo Sales Centres, by calling 613-741-4390, and at octranspo.com.
Summer service changes include:
- New service to local museums operating on weekends throughout the summer. Route 129 will serve the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and new Route 185 will serve the Agriculture Museum and Experimental Farm. Connect to these routes at major Transitway stations.
- The realignment of the Transitway between Campus and Laurier Stations for the construction of the Light Rail Confederation Line. Buses will travel via new bus-only lanes on Laurier and Nicholas and the Laurier Station stop will be adjusted slightly. Traffic signals will be timed to maintain the flow of buses and avoid delays, and service will be monitored to ensure consistent and reliable travel times. This permanent change will accommodate construction of the east tunnel portal entrance for the Confederation Line.
- A modification of Route 118 at Algonquin Campus between 10:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. on weekdays, and all day on weekends; buses will travel via Woodroffe and Navaho instead of College Avenue east of Woodroffe.
- Trips on Route 112 to Heron Park will be renamed Kaladar to avoid confusion with trips to Herongate.
Schedule adjustments to Routes 157 and 186 for improved service and reliability.
The next scheduled service change will take place on September 1.
