Additional OC Transpo service improvements for east end residents
City Councillor and Transit Commission Chair Stephen Blais is pleased to announce that OC Transpo will expand its service for Orléans transit users.
“Following consultations with residents which identified a need for increased capacity, I worked with OC Transpo to add more capacity for Orléans commuters with larger buses and additional routes,” says Councillor Blais. “There have been great strides made to improve public transit in Orléans with even greater improvements coming in the near future.”
