NOTEBOOK: LRT will bring changes, but will it improve bus service for Stittsville?

By Glen Gower, StittsvilleCentral, March 22, 2018

I’m just getting home from tonight’s OC Transpo open house at the GRC. My overwhelming impression: When LRT arrives this fall it will be a big change, but the impact on Stittsville transit service will be minimal.

We heard that when LRT service starts later this year (likely late November), bus service to Stittsville won’t be any more frequent, nor will the buses be any less crowded than they are now. Schedules should be slightly more reliable because buses won’t have to traverse across downtown, so there’s less chance that congestion, traffic lights, or weather can cause delays. The big change that riders will notice is the transfer point at Tunney’s Pasture from bus to rail.
