O-Train Line 1 Temporary Closure - Reopening on Monday, June 29th
OC Transpo has been advised by the Rideau Transit Group that the planned maintenance and repairs to improve system performance on O-Train Line 1 will be completed on Sunday, June 28. As a result, R1 bus service will end and trains will resume service at 5am on Monday, June 29.
As part of OC Transpo's recovery plan, Monday will also see a return to full summer weekday service for buses, and all routes will be running. Similar schedule changes will be made on Line 1, with frequencies increasing gradually over the week of June 29.
On Canada Day, transit is no-charge, and Line 1 will operate on a reduced weekday schedule to reflect the lower ridership as a result of many celebrations transitioning to a virtual format.
Full summer service on Line 1 will be restored on Thursday, July 2. The return to full summer service is a key part of OC Transpo's plan to keep everyone safer by providing more space on buses and trains as more customers begin using transit.
As the summer progresses, RTG may request additional closures to expedite other work activities. Should that occur, I will communicate with you.
As always, the focus remains on improving service reliability for our customers.
