The Transitway reopened on Sunday evening, just days after the fatal crash at Westboro station. 

Three people were killed, 23 others injured when Route 269 drove up on the platform, shearing off the right top-side of the double decked bus. 

The mayor announced the reopening of the Transitway on Sunday: 

There is also an area set up for memorials.  Anyone who may have been affected by this tragic crash, can speak to any of the public health staff on hand at Westboro station Monday morning or by calling the Distress Centre of Ottawa at 613-722-6914 or 1-866-996-0991.
