'It's going to help:' Changes to bus routes take effect

By CFRA News, January 5, 2020

OTTAWA -- More than three dozen changes to bus routes took effect Sunday in an effort to improve transit, especially in the suburbs and rural areas.

“There’s not enough buses, we need the big buses,” one rider exiting Tunney’s Pasture told CTV News Sunday.

Riders had been voicing their frustration since the launch of the Confederation Line LRT service in September. Many of the complaints take aim at bus service, how buses often don't show up or if they do, there is overcrowding.

“I think more buses would be excellent,” said one transit user waiting for the 61 bus in Kanata Sunday afternoon.
