O-Train Service Adjustment – Carleton Spring Switch/Preventative Maintenance

O-Train_C3_at_Walkley_Yard

From Saturday, June 17, until Friday, June 30, Trillium Line service will be temporarily replaced by Route 107 bus service in order to facilitate planned maintenance activities, including the replacement of Carleton Station’s track switches and other associated equipment. This work is being performed over the summer when ridership is lowest in order to minimize the impact to OC Transpo customers.

 

As part of these efforts, Carleton Station’s siding spring switch will be replaced with new powered switches. This project helps set the stage for work required as part of the Trillium Line extension in Stage 2 of the City’s light rail transit plan, and is funded in part by the Federal and Provincial governments through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund. This work will help enhance reliability of the system and standardize infrastructure along the Trillium Line.

 

During the temporary service adjustments, bus Route 107 will provide service parallel to the Trillium Line and will operate every 15 minutes. In addition to Route 107, there may be other bus route options that work better for some customers. Customers are encouraged to call 613-741-4390, visit octranspo.com or use octranspo.mobi for travel planning assistance. Schedules are available by calling 613-560-1000 or texting 560560 plus the bus stop number.
