City council representatives want to talk about delays and glitches that OC Transpo users continue to experience, about six weeks after the launch of the $2.1-billion light rail Confederation Line.

A group of councillors are demanding to have an emergency transit commission meeting.

"A number of us have been discussing this, we are worried about it," said Catherine McKenney, councillor and member of the City of Ottawa's Transit Commission. "We feel that the unreliability of both the buses and the trains are really rapidly eroding public trust in our system. I don't feel we should wait another week for the regular transit meeting."
