Bus 'tweaks' possible in wake of LRT delay

By Joanne Chianello, CBC News Ottawa, September 19, 2018

OC Transpo will look at "tweaking" about a dozen bus routes that were altered in anticipation of a 2018 LRT launch, some of which now stop blocks short of major downtown destinations, transit boss John Manconi said Wednesday morning.

More than two dozen bus routes were changed in recent weeks to integrate with the light rail system, which was supposed to be up and running before the end of the year. Most of the changes were designed to deliver passengers to LRT transfer points rather than final destinations.

But last week, Manconi announced Rideau Transit Group (RTG) — the consortium building the light rail system — would not meet its completion deadline of Nov. 2.
