OC Transpo Line 1 LRT update for July 20

R1 Service

Currently, OC Transpo is providing the following service levels to our customers:
• R1 bus service continues to run between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair Stations
• During peak periods, 36 buses are in operation. This helps mitigate traffic issues and increases reliability for our customers

New R1 Service Adjustments

• Starting at 3:00 PM, R1 service will be enhanced with the introduction of a shuttle between Lees and Rideau stations. This will improve reliability and reduce travel times for customers.

• For customers, this means:

o Westbound R1 service will run from Blair to Tunney’s Pasture stations, stopping at each station except for Lees station
o A shuttle will run between Lees, uOttawa and Rideau stations
o Customers travelling to Lees Station from the east can connect with the shuttle and Eastbound R1 service at uOttawa Station
o Eastbound R1 service will continue serve Lees Station

• Our Transit Operations Control Centre is working on finalizing additional R1 route enhancements to ensure we deliver the best possible service to our customers. At the start of service tomorrow, R1 bus service will use Albert and Slater Street downtown, instead of Queen Street. For customers, this means:

o Westbound R1 buses will run on Albert street with stops at Bank and Kent
o Eastbound R1 buses will run on Slater street with stops at Kent and O’Connor
o New signage is being installed to notify customers about the alternate R1 stops

• Staff are at stations supporting customers during their trips

We encourage customers to visit OCTranspo.com for the latest information about their trips
