LRT service reduced to seven trains as cracks found on three steel wheels

By the Ottawa Citizen, July 4, 2020

The city will allow the Rideau Transit Group and trainmaker Alstom to reduce its LRT service to seven trains as they try to identify the cause and repair cracks discovered in three steel train wheels.

Service was reduced on the troubled Confederation Line Friday morning after a crack was found on a steel wheel of one of the trains during Thursday night maintenance.

(...)While work continues to determine the root causes of the cracks, all LRT vehicles will now be inspected after each run.
