Residents in some east Ottawa neighbourhoods are so frustrated by recent bus route changes that the issue has become one of the top complaints that candidates in Innes ward hear about at the door.

Life has become especially inconvenient for high school students in Chapel Hill and Blackburn Hamlet, as they try to keep up jobs and after-school activities, the candidates say.

"It's a toss up now. It was traffic and the road network, but now it really is transit and the lack of local routes in the area. A lot of residents are really upset," said candidate Tammy Lynch.
