O-Train Line 1 will close temporarily and be replaced by R1 bus service on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3, and again from Saturday, May 9 until Wednesday, May 13.
These closures will enable Rideau Transit Group the opportunity to complete maintenance activities and work relating to issues that have impacted service. The City has granted permission for Rideau Transit Group to complete this work due to the current low ridership resulting from COVID-19.
R1 bus service will operate frequently to ensure there is space to allow customers to follow physical distancing guidelines. As a reminder, transit services should only be used for essential travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Entrance grills and doors at most Line 1 stations will be closed during this time and customers will only have access to R1 bus stops. O-Train Ambassadors will be located at Line 1 stations to help direct customers to R1 bus stops.
