Ottawa LRT will be short trains during PM rush hour after ‘debris’ damages transponders

“Debris” on the western end of Ottawa’s LRT tracks damaged four transponders on Friday morning, causing trains to lose contact with OC Transpo’s control centre and stop moving, the head of the city’s public transit agency says.

Four trains that “experienced the loss of communication and braking” had to be pulled from service because of flat spots on their wheels and as a result, the Confederation Line will be three trains short for the afternoon rush hour, according to OC Transpo management.
