OC Transpo offers early morning start for Marathon

You may remember that last year, participants and spectators of the Ottawa Marathon were rather shocked that the LRT did not start operating until 8am, a full hour after the race began. This meant that people were forced to use other means to get around, on a day when traffic is horrific.

We always like to give credit where credit is due so let’s acknowledge that OC Transpo learned a valuable lesson from the criticism.

This year, the LRT will start in plenty of time to give people the option of taking public transit to the race.

Whether you attend the Marathon or not, you can breath a sigh of relief at this decision to encourage people to leave their cars at home on a day that is legendary for traffic woes.
