Navigating Ottawa’s bus system is easier, thanks to an update to the OC Transpo website.

 

Octranspo.com now offers a quick version of the travel planner on every page, along with route timetables. New functions include a Google map lookup of bus stops and departure times, daily service updates, such as route detours, an updated community events listing and a site search function.

 

Riders can also sign up for mobile alerts, which will give customers immediate information about trip cancellations and route detours.

 

During the testing phase earlier this fall, users reported that the new site was less cluttered, easier to navigate and that bus stop schedules are easier to look up.
