Stopped train slows down O-Train service for 3 hours on Thursday

OC Transpo says regular service has resumed along the Confederation Line, after a stopped train slowed down service on the western end of the line for three hours.

The transit service reported a stopped train at 6:18 a.m. Thursday, saying service was only available on the eastbound platforms between Lyon, Pimisi and Bayview Stations. Commuters had to change trains at Lyon Station before continuing to travel along the line.

Transit riders told CTV News Ottawa there were long waits to board the train at Tunney’s Pasture Station, and there was no space to board when the trains stopped at Pimisi Station.

OC Transpo reported regular service resumed at 9:23 a.m., and all platforms are open for transit riders.

There is no word on why the train stopped on the track.

CTV News Ottawa has reached out to OC Transpo for more information.
