Commuters in Gatineau and the rest of the Outaouais struggled for a Plan B 0n Thursday morning as drivers and mechanics for the Société du transport de l’Outaouais staged a one-day walkout to protest lagging contract talks.

While traffic was light, in part due to spring break, lineups were long at key transfer points, such as the terminus at Terrasses de la Chaudière, where Ottawa-bound passengers can link with OC Transpo. The stops outside the Les Terrasses were jammed with freezing passengers who’d had to make their own way to the last leg of commutes to Ottawa.
