In the midst of yet another miserable morning for Ottawa commuters, Mayor Jim Watson took to Twitter to promise both short- and long-term fixes for the problem-plagued transit system.

Confederation Line service was disrupted from 5:30 a.m. until 8:40 a.m. Friday by separate problems east of the downtown tunnel, according to OC Transpo's timeline of events.

Fare gates were also stuck open at several LRT stations, but anyone who took advantage of the free ride faced a long wait for a train.
