OC Transpo Spring Changes

Starting Sunday, April 23, OC Transpo will introduce new route numbers for many routes as part of getting ready for the opening of the O-Train Confederation Line in 2018.  The Rack & Roll program also returns with bike racks on more than 600 buses.

Customers should visit www.octranspo.com and use the travel planner to see if their regular trips are affected.


New route numbers, same route

Fourteen bus routes will be renumbered across the city as part of the transition to the 2018 transit network. These routes will have new numbers, but the routes will remain the same. OC Transpo is also introducing three new service types: Rapid, Frequent, and Local. Each service type has its own distinctive colour and symbol, which customers will see on new bus stop signs.
Route renumbering details:

  • Routes 92 and 96 will be renumbered as Rapid Routes 62 and 61 respectively
  • Routes 2, 118, and 176 will be renumbered as Frequent Routes 11, 88, and 80 respectively
  • Nine other Local routes will be renumbered
  • Real-time schedule information is available 24 hours a day by calling 613-560-1000 or texting 560560 plus the four‑digit bus stop number. For more details please call OC Transpo at 613-741-4390 or visit octranspo.com.
