OC Transpo officials still don't have an estimated time for when the O-Train will be back in service on the Trillium Line following vandalism.

Director of Transit Operations Troy Charter confirmed to OttawaMatters that vandals cut signalling cable Tuesday morning and removed a portion of it.

He said repairs have been completed, but they're doing a series of tests to make sure all of the systems are working properly.

Charter added that The Ottawa Police Service is handling an investigation into the vandalism and theft.

The Route 107 bus has been running in place of the Trillium Line train.
