OC Transpo has scheduled full and partial closures of O-Train Line 1 between Sunday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 24 for work to improve service reliability. R1 replacement bus service will operate on these dates to ensure continuity of service.

On Sunday, June 21, Line 1 will be closed, and R1 replacement bus service will operate all day between Tunney's Pasture and Blair stations.

Additionally, from Monday, June 22 until Wednesday, June 24, a section of O-Train Line 1 will be closed.
