Future plans[edit]

  • The City of Ottawa plans to extend the O-Train Confederation Line to Fallowfield station sometime after 2031.[6]
  • After the extension of O-Train Line 2 towards Riverside South begins operations on spring 2024, Route 110 service will be realigned and extended to Limebank replacing the 99 between CitiGate and Riverside South. Route 110 will provide the main connection to O-Train Line 2 for Riverside South and Barrhaven as well as a direction between Kanata North and CitiGate. Route 110 service to/from CFIA-Agri will most probably be replaced by special service from Route 170 or dropped altogether.


The 2013 Ottawa bus–train crash took place on September 18, 2013, between an OC Transpo bus and a Via train, at a level crossing located north of Fallowfield station. Six bus passengers died and several people were injured as a result.[7]
