R1 service began this morning at 8:00 a.m, which is the LRT schedule for a Sunday, and we continue to monitor it closely.  

Customers should know that:

    • Westbound R1 buses are running on Albert Street, with stops at Bank and Kent 
    • Eastbound R1 buses are running on Slater Street, with stops at Kent and O’Connor 
  • Westbound R1 service is running from Blair to Tunney’s Pasture, stopping at each station, except for Lees
    • A shuttle operates between Lees, uOttawa, and Rideau stations: 
    • Customers travelling to Lees station from the east can connect with the shuttle and eastbound R1 service at uOttawa station 
    • Eastbound R1 service will continue to serve Lees station 
  • A shuttle is running between Cyrville station and St-Laurent station in order to connect customers with R1 service 
  • Based on customer feedback new signage has been installed at Albert and Slater streets. Further improvements will be made tomorrow.
