Start of reduced service on O-Train Line 1, weekend closure on Highway 174

By Megan Gillis, Ottawa Citizen, March 27, 2020

Expect less frequent train service on the O-Train Line 1 starting Friday as OC Transpo adapts to plummeting passenger volumes.

Trains will arrive every six to eight minutes at peak periods and every 10 to 16 minutes at other times of the day and on weekends.

The number of dedicated R1 buses is being reduced to align with changed service levels on Line 1 and there will be fewer red-vested O-Train ambassadors.

On Fridays, service will run until 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning and overnight bus service will be available from that time. Otherwise, service start and end times will remain the same.
