OC Transpo and the Gatineau STO system are making some changes to their service in Ottawa starting June 20 and June 21 respectively. The key changes for routes that service our neighbourhood are:
Route 55 – Starting June 20, the 55 will start and end its trip along Carling Ave. at the Westgate Mall, no longer continuing to Bayshore Mall.
Route 56 – Starting June 20, the 56 will also make short trips between the Tunney’s LRT station and the Civic Hospital (replacing current service provided by the 53).
Route 10 – No changes. (However, GACA will be advocating to extend this route to the Rideau Centre once transit resumes to full service after the pandemic. More details to follow!)
All OC Transpo and STO passes and transfers will be accepted on both systems, making it possible to pay your fare as you wish, and still be able to transfer to the other system.
Other upcoming changes to the STO service include changes to connection locations on the Ottawa side.
