On Sunday, June 19, new summer schedules begin along with several routing changes for improved service in the community of Greenboro East.
Summer service improvements
- In Greenboro East, Route 143 will be cancelled and replaced by a modified Route 114, which will serve Johnston Road and provide hourly service on Tapiola. Route 43 will be modified to travel from Cahill, south on Bank Street to Hunt Club, then north along the Transitway to Hurdman Station.
- Route 72 will be extended along Cobble Hill to start and end at Hélène Campbell.
- On Sundays, several southbound trips on Route 98 in the morning and evening will be extended to start at Mackenzie King Station for improved service along King Edward and at Lees Station.
Special summer weekend service
Service to local museums and beaches will operate on weekends and holidays throughout the summer until September 5. Route 129 will serve the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and Route 185 will operate to the Agriculture Museum and Experimental Farm. Route 198, which starts June 18, will serve Petrie Island.
New schedules will reflect the lower demand for service during the summer vacation period. School routes will be suspended until the fall, and there will be minor schedule reductions on mainline and peak period routes. New schedules are available at OC Transpo Customer Service Centres, by calling 613-741-4390, and at octranspo.com.
Starting June 24, adjustments will be made at Tunney’s Pasture Station for Confederation Line O-Train construction. Further details are available online at ontrack2018.ca and will be posted at the station.
