OC Transpo Issues Post-Storm Wrap-Up


This is a release from the City of Ottawa:

Good afternoon Mayor and Members of Council, 

As a follow-up to this morning’s email, I am writing to provide an update on transit services during this latest winter storm. As the storm winds down, OC Transpo continues to adhere to its winter operations plan for bus, O-Train, and Para Transpo services. 

O-Train Line 1 Service 

O-Train service continues to run across the entire line. We are working with Rideau Transit Maintenance to keep the tracks and rail infrastructure clear, to monitor the system, and to provide salting at stations and platforms.

Bus and Para Transpo Service 

Our partners at the City’s Public Works Department continue to prioritize transit corridors and clear roads, which is critical to keeping transit moving.

As with all transportation today, bus and Para Transpo customers have experienced delays due to challenging road conditions, which has included detours and buses getting stuck in the heavy snow. Our teams have been working to clear these situations as quickly as possible and the situation has improved. We continue to encourage customers to allow plenty of time when planning their commute as this weather has had an impact everyone on the road, and to use caution when boarding and exiting at bus stops or stations.

Throughout this weather event, updates are being shared on octranspo.com, social media and real-time information is available on the Transit App. 

I would like to thank the team at Public Works, and my team at OC Transpo for their continued hard work.

Thank you to all users for their patience as we put their safety first.


Renée Amilcar

General Manager, Transit Services Department
