OC Transpo Alerts is an independent Twitter service provided by a regular transit user. Run cancellations are automated from OCTranspo.com, while delays and detours are manually tweeted using information from OCTranspo.com, the media, other Tweeters, City of Ottawa road closures website, MTO road closures website, and with the help of City of Ottawa traffic cameras.

OC Transpo Alerts was created in February 2010. Since its full-time operation in October 2010, OC Transpo Alerts has been providing updates to thousands of followers including CBC Ottawa, The Ottawa Citizen, city councillors, and of course, OC Transpo passengers.
