Residents want high-functioning bus service on revitalized Montreal Road

By 1310 News, June 19, 2018

The Vice President of Healthy Transportation Coalition Ottawa says, since the LRT is going to miss Vanier, residents in the neighbourhood need better bus services.

Vanier residents, frustrated with transit service along Montreal Road, are working to get their issues with OC Transpo addressed in the upcoming revitalization of the major east-end corridor.

On 1310 NEWS' The Rick Gibbons Show, Vice President of Healthy Transportation Coalition Ottawa Trevor Haché said about 60 people gathered at their Monday night meeting to talk about the issues affecting Vanier residents.

"Buses that don't show up when they're supposed to, or buses that are showing up right after one another," he explained. "I was there [on Monday] and witnesses two number 12 buses lining up right behind each other, meaning that someone was probably waiting a really long time because one of those buses was either very late or very early."
