Overcrowding on Gatineau buses getting worse, numbers show

By Krystalle Ramlakhan, CBC News Ottawa, December 3, 2018

Gatineau city buses — including many that run into Ottawa — are so overcrowded that an increasing number are forced to bypass waiting riders because there isn't enough space on board.

This past September, the number of overcrowded Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) buses jumped 70 per cent compared to the same time in 2017, according to information obtained by Radio-Canada through an access to information request.

The number of full STO buses increased from 1,139 in 2017 to 1,936 in 2018, despite adjustments made by STO over the past year.
