OC Transpo is a company providing transit service to the communities that make up the City of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Some OC Transpo routes also provide service to the downtown core of the nearby city of Gatineau, Quebec.
In 2001, a pilot diesel-powered light rail service project, known as the O-Train, was introduced. The local government has announced expansion plans for the light rail to other parts of Ottawa, including a possible link to the Ottawa International Airport. Service to Gatineau would also be possible, as a nearby rail bridge exists over the Ottawa River.
OC Transpo also administers a door to door transportation service, known as Para Transpo, for persons with disabilities that prevent them from being able to use OC Tranpo's regular, fixed-route transit service.
For a number of years, OC Transpo has carried bicycle racks on some routes as a part of the "Rack&Roll" campaign. These racks carry up to two bicycles at the front of the bus, and fold up against the bus when not in use. Although it started only on three routes, it has expanded to include routes 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 85, 95, 96, 97, 118 and 180, as well as all articulated (long) buses. Traditionally, the racks have only been available between April and October, and there has been much debate over continuing the program throughout the year; however, cyclists may use the racks at any time on any bus that is equipped with a rack, provided there is room for him or her in the bus.
