A section of the Confederation Line LRT is back up and running Friday after a short disturbance caused by a person on the tracks.
OC Transpo tweeted shortly after 3 p.m. that R1 replacement bus service was running between St-Laurent and Blair stations, citing a “disturbance on the tracks.”
The service disruption proved to be short-lived and seemingly unrelated to any technical malfunction, with the transit agency tweeting before 4 p.m. that service had resumed between the east-end stations.
“Special constables have helped unauthorized person off the tracks safely. Regular service between St-Laurent and Blair stations has resumed and all platforms are now open,” OC Transpo said.
Friday marks two weeks of partial service running on the Confederation Line after a 54-day system-wide shutdown stemming from the Sept. 19 derailment.
