Looking to get around Ottawa?

Once you’re in Canada’s Capital, getting around is easy in any season! Take full advantage of Ottawa’s many transportation options such as public transit, light rail system, taxi services, ride sharing and more! Public and private transportation options in the Ottawa-Gatineau region include:

Public transit (bus and light rail)

There are two city transportation systems in Canada’s capital region:

OC Transpo operates buses and Ottawa’s light rail train (O-Train) on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River. Tickets and day passes can be purchased on the bus with cash, at all O-Train stations with credit card or cash, or at select pharmacies, grocery stores, and the CF Rideau Centre. In 2022, children under the age of 7 travel for free (instead of the usual age of 5 or less).

The Société de Transport de l’Outaouais, also known as STO, operates on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River. Tickets and day passes (Occasional Multi pass) can be purchased at service points and recharge stations at select pharmacies, convenient stores and malls or on the bus with cash. Children under the age of 5 travel for free.

Some buses run between the two areas, and you can transfer between the two systems at several locations along the O-Train Line 1 in Ottawa and around the Place d’Accueil on Maisonneuve Boulevard in Gatineau, Quebec. Both agencies offer convenient trip planning tools on their websites.
