Ottawa City Councillors are sharing their highs and lows of riding public transit for an entire week.

It was part of the Transit Challenge, organized by transit advocacy group Free Transit Ottawa.

"It was an eye-opener for me," said Gloucestor-South Nepean Councillor Carol Anne Meehan.

(...)One of the organizers of the Transit Challenge, Kirstin Pulles, says she was overwhelmed by the response from councillors, but dissappointed some chose not to take part.

"They are saying the transit system is ineffective and doesn't work for them, and is insufficient service to meet the needs of a busy person, and our city is full of busy people,"
