OC Transpo Route 269 has been renumbered as a mark of respect to the three people who died and 23 who were injured when a double-decker crashed at Westboro Station in Ottawa.
“Route number 269 is being retired out of respect for those who passed away or were injured in the Westboro Station bus collision,” the city said in a bulletin on spring service changes that took effect Sunday.
At the time of the Jan. 11 crash, OC Transpo’s “Connexion” Route 269 was bound for Bridlewood from downtown.
Route 257 is on the same routing and schedule.
Other spring service changes include adjustments to Routes 164 and 252 in Bridlewood so passengers won’t have to cross without traffic signals on Hope Side Road and reduced frequency for the O-Train on weekday and Saturday evenings and during the day Sunday for seasonal drops in ridership.
