Transitway to open again tonight, 2 days after a fatal bus crash


More than 48 hours after a fatal bus crash at Westboro Station, Transitway is expected to be open tonight.

Three people were killed and 23 wounded on Friday afternoon, when a two-storey OC Transpo bus to Kanata arrived at a bus shelter station.

Since the disaster, transit has been closed between the Dominion and the Tunisian pastures.

The city of Ottawa said on Sunday afternoon that Transitway would be resumed at. 19:30 and there will be no temporary bus stop at nearby Scott Street.

The Mayor of Twitter, Jim Watson, said that staff working for both OC Transpo and Ottawa's public health will be providing assistance to riders tonight and Monday.

The city has also created two temporary memorial sites at Westboro Station: one at the lowest western transit platform level and the other at the top level on the corner of Scott Street and Athone Avenue.

The race on Scott Street near Westboro was closed after the accident, but it resumed on Saturday.
