The every day challenge for commuters in Ottawa include waiting for buses that never show, buses that show up late and buses with no room.

This week, 17 city councillors are experiencing these issues first hand.

"What the councillors are running into are full buses, late buses, missing buses where GPS says the bus is coming, nothing comes," said Sam Boswell, co-founder of Ottawa Transit Riders.

She explained to 1310 NEWS that she's impressed with how many stepped up to take part.
