The City of Ottawa has advised of some upcoming service disruptions for the O-Train Trillium Line, for both annual track maintenance as well as to accomodate provincial highway work. The Ministry of Transportation is doing prep work for a future overpass replacement on Highway 417 over the rail line.

The train will be completely out of service and replaced by the bus replacement dubbed R2 from July 15 to July 21. The bus replacement runs every 15 minutes.

From July 22 through Aug. 18, the Trillium Line will run only between Greenboro Station in the south and Carling Station in the north. From Carling to Bayview Station, the route will be served by R2 bus service.

Full rail service is schedule to resume for the morning commute on Aug. 19.

“As in previous years, this work will be completed during the summer when ridership is lowest and to avoid conflict with major events and with the Carleton University school year,” the city said in a news release.
