Ottawa – Starting Monday, March 2, the public will be able to take advantage of more comfortable, convenient and reliable O-Train Trillium Line service with the completion of the expansion project, which includes the introduction of six new Alstom Coradia Lint trains
The new service will operate four trains at one time, allowing more frequent service. Monday to Friday service will start at 6 a.m. and Saturday service will start at 6:30 a.m., running every 10 to 12 minutes, and Sunday service will start at 7:30 a.m. and run every 10 to15 minutes.
With the expanded service, the signals and operations will be adjusted further. The service frequency will gradually increase and travel time will be reduced — when trains will run approximately every 8 to10 minutes.
Temporary Shutdown February 28 to March 1
In order to implement the new services, the O-Train Trillium Line service will be temporarily replaced by bus Route 107 from February 28 to March 1, 2015, to complete final system switchover work and prepare for the new trains.
Route 107 buses will travel parallel to the Trillium Line routing between Bayview and South Keys stations, with limited stops along the way. Service will operate approximately every 15 minutes on Saturday and every 15 to 30 minutes on Sunday.
In addition to Route 107, there may be other bus route options that work better for some customers. For schedules and travel planning assistance, visit octranspo.com or call 613-741-4390.
