Delays on Confederation Line for 3rd straight morning
Train broke down at Bayview station
A train that broke down at Bayview station again caused delays on Ottawa's new light rail line.
The issue happened at about 7:30 a.m., according to OC Transpo, and was fixed by 7:55 a.m.
Trains were running on their regular schedule as of 8:15 a.m., OC Transpo said, with replacement buses running eastbound along the Confederation Line from Tunney's Pasture to Rideau stations until 9 a.m.
The city has not said what the problem was with the train.
The issues again led to crowding at LRT stations, including Tunney's Pasture.

Major delays snarled transit during the morning commute both Tuesday and Wednesday because of issues with the doors.
