The Trillium Line will close for a very long time when the city adds stations, installs tracks and fixes infrastructure along the route during the Stage 2 program, but OC Transpo isn’t concerned about losing revenue.

Under Stage 2, Transpo will close the Trillium Line for 16 months starting in spring 2020. Bus Route 107 will replace the train service, like it does today when a problem happens or there’s maintenance on the Trillium Line.

When a train service is substituted with buses, there’s a chance of losing rider loyalty, which can impact revenue.
