Transport - There are five O-Train Stations
in the city of Ottawa. They each have well-lit platforms,
emergency call boxes, and map and schedule information.
Children 11 and under ride free on the O-Train. When
you are riding the O-Train be prepared to show your
pass, transfer, or O-Train ticket for proof of payment.
Taking the bus is another means of Transportation
and you can get a Day Pass. This is a very
economical way to travel. It is valid as full fare
on regular and express routes, but on rural express
routes, a top-up of $1.00 or 1 ticket is required.
This is a great way to get around the city especially
on Sundays, just one Day Pass will entitle your family
(up to 2 adults and 4 children, age 11 and under)
to unlimited same-day travel. If you purchase the
ticket from one of their vendors the price is $6.00
and if it is purchased on the bus it is $6.50. There
are also park and ride lots that are free of charge
that you can leave your vehicle at if you wish to
take the bus around the city. The city of Ottawa also
offers Para Transpo. It is a door to door transportation
service for persons with disabilities.
Other means of Ottawa Transportation available
are rental cars, taxis and limousines for your convenience.
Ask your hotel if they offer a shuttle, some of them
will have them and they are very convenient for the
visitor. Whichever way that you decide to see the
city you will need to have a map with you at all times.
Highlight your route ahead of time to save time finding
the roads on the map. Watch for any traffic signs
and follow the rules of the road if you are driving
for a safe and happy trip.
