OC Transpo implements fall service improvements on September 4

On Sunday, September 4th, the new fall schedules go into effect on most routes; LeBreton Station will be shifting eastward, and some routing improvements will be implemented, including new service to Carling Campus on Moodie Drive and a new route serving Stittsville.

Fall service highlights include:

  • New route 167 will serve the growing community of Blackstone in Stittsville, with weekday rush hour service to Terry Fox Station for connections to other routes serving downtown, work and school. This will replace the community shuttle that was previously implemented for a one year span.

For more information on the new fall schedule and eligibility for university and college students to get their new U-Pass as well as other information in relation to elementary and secondary students transit pass please visit here.

Students should note that monthly paper passes will no longer be available after September. Beginning in October 2016 students wishing to purchase a monthly pass must do so on a Presto card.   An October monthly student pass can be loaded on a Presto card beginning on September 17th.
