OC Transpo New Ways to Bus: Expanded Service to Half Moon Bay, More Frequent Local Routes

From OC Transpo, the City of Ottawa. Compiled by the Ward 3 Team.

New Ways to Bus (the modified routes) will begin when O-Train Line 2 is operational, which is TBD (hopeful for Fall 2024). We will let you know when they take effect.
