4-day LRT shutdown starts Sunday

By CBC News Ottawa, May 26, 2020

Ottawa's new light rail line will shut down for four days starting Sunday to undergo more testing and maintenance, taking advantage of a dramatic lull in ridership due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Confederation Line will be out of service from Sunday, May 31, to Wednesday, June 3.

R1 buses will replace the LRT as they did during two shutdowns earlier this month.

Beset with problems through the fall and winter, the Confederation Line then saw a dramatic drop in ridership in March with so many passengers staying home or reluctant to use public transit.
