O-Train Line 2 detour
- On Sunday, May 3, O-Train Line 2 will temporarily close to allow for construction of the Stage 2 O-Train expansion.
- During the closure, buses will replace train service and will run along the entire line, stopping at all stations, as well as South Keys, Walkley and Heron stations and Preston/Gladstone.
- Buses will operate at least every 15 minutes and more frequently if required to provide additional capacity and space for physical distancing among customers onboard. The frequency will be increased as required as the current situation evolves.
- Service levels will increase for the fall and winter service period to account for increased demand.
- Line 2 will reopen when construction is complete.
- The expansion will see eight new stations and an additional 16-km of rail line.
- The expanded line will continue from Greenboro to Limebank in Riverside South, and a new rail link will be built to the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport.
