O-Train Line 1 annual maintenance and corrective actions: July 15 to 28

O-Train Line 1 service will not operate between Tunney’s Pasture and Rideau stations from Monday, July 15 to Sunday, July 28 while OC Transpo and Rideau Transit Maintenance perform corrective maintenance work along that section of the line. Regular O-Train Line 1 service will resume on Monday, July 29, 2024.

O-Train Line 1 service will continue to operate in both directions between Blair and uOttawa stations.

For customers, this means that between July 15 and July 28: 

  • R1 bus service will run between Tunney’s Pasture and Hurdman stations. Westbound service will be detoured between Bayview Station Road and Parkdale Avenue due to construction on Scott Street. R1 bus stops will not be affected by this detour.

  • E1 Shuttle Express bus service will run between Blair Station and downtown seven days a week during all Line 1 service hours.

  • Outreach staff will be located at key locations to provide support.

We understand that this work can be disruptive and appreciate your patience as we perform necessary maintenance. All light rail systems require regular maintenance work on a frequent basis. This work will contribute to the long-term sustainability and reliability of the O-Train Line 1 system.
