Ottawa Transitway

Opened starting in 1983, the Ottawa Transitway is a network of disconnected bus rapid transit corridors that service the city of Ottawa, Ontario and the surrounding suburbs. Due to the disjointed nature of the network, we are treating them as a single entity on this website.

Ottawa Transitway

The Ottawa Transitway consists of seven disconnected bus rapid transit corridors grouped into five sections. The transitways proper consist of the West Transitway (Moodie-Pinecrest), Southwest Transitway (Lincoln Fields-Baseline, Fallowfield-Barrhaven Centre, Beatrice-Nepean Woods), Central Transitway (Dominion-Tunney's Pasture), Southeast Transitway (Hurdman-Hunt Club), and the East Transitway (Blair-Millenium, not BRT standard). Parts of the Ottawa Transitway is currently undergoing conversion to light metro.


The first section of the Ottawa Transitway was opened in 1983. The Ottawa Transitway is owned by the City of Ottawa and operated by OC Transpo.
