LRT platforms were crowded during the rush hour commute Monday morning.

Monday was the first big test for full LRT service after parallel bus service ended.

 OC Transpo adjusted more than 100 routes taking thousands of bus trips out of the downtown core.

Pimisi station was busy for commuters heading to Gatineau. 

Some commuters were not taking any chances about which route to take to get to work. 

Tunney's Pasture was a major transfer location. Many bus routes now ended at Tunney's Pasture and commuters transfer to the LRT Confederation Line. 

Chair of the Transit Commission Allan Hubley said overall, things went well.

"We saw at the peak that it was getting pretty full, but it wasn't over full. There wasn't mass numbers being left behind", Hubley said.

Transportation Manager John Manconi said the system worked. "I was at the peak of the peak this morning here, full platforms..trains would pull up. It would take everybody it needed to take.  Trains are busy, but they're not at their full capacity", Manconi said.
