A new bus route will make its way through Vanier starting at the end of this year.Due to continual delays and frustrations,OC Transpo will split the former Route 5 will be split into two more reliable routes – creating a new Route 5 and a new Route 19; the latter will start at the St. Laurent Centre and then head downtown.

“The change is to make service more regular and more reliable,” OC Transpo’s manager of transit service planning and reporting, Pat Scrimgeour, told Vanier residents on Nov. 8. “This is about the number of people who are counting on this bus to simply bring them downtown.”
