The Ottawa Sun is reporting that OC Transpo will be providing real-time updates of the capacity left in park and ride lots starting on Monday. The updates will be available at OC Transpo's web site. With depleted service in the suburbs, the lots are expected to fill quickly -- so this could be a useful tool for commuters. But even better is if they could tell you in realtime how packed the 95's are on the Transitway.
Meanwhile, OC Transpo says that December bus passes will be valid at least until the end of March.
