OC Transpo will test new tire treads this winter to try to get buses better traction in deep snow, says the transit agency’s director of operations.

“Once you get over that five-centimetre snow accumulation on roads, that’s when most vehicles, especially our buses, tend to have traction issues,” Troy Charter said Monday, as OC Transpo was fighting its way back from a morning rush hour made difficult by snow that began Sunday afternoon and fell for most of a day.
