When the O-Train Confederation Line opens, the trains will run so often that you will rarely have to check the digital displays or listen to the announcements to know when the next one is set to arrive!
Customers will not only have improved access to and through Ottawa’s downtown, but they will also have a more comfortable and dependable commute with more predictable travel times.
During the morning and afternoon rush hours, the train will arrive every 5 minutes or less. Service will be frequent all day, and every 15 minutes after midnight, and service delays typically caused by traffic congestion, weather or other common commute challenges will not be an issue on the Confederation Line.
For maintenance purposes, the Confederation Line track will shut down each night during the following hours:
- Monday to Thursday from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m.;
- Friday from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.;
- Saturday from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m.; and,
- Sunday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
When the train is not running, select Rapid bus routes will be extended through downtown from the east, west and south, like the late-night service now provided by Transitway Routes 95 and 97.
