The City of Ottawa plans to retire the number of the Route 76 express bus to honour the six people killed in last September's bus-train crash near Fallowfield station in Barrhaven.
It was a #76 double-decker that was involved in the collision with a VIA Rail passenger train.
The route itself will be renumbered.
"This was a request by all family members," Mayor Jim Watson told CFRA. "They all agreed that they would like to see that number retired and it will be replaced by route #72 and that will take place in September."
Watson said there will also be a commemorative plaque or memorial.
It will be a design acceptable to the families of the victims, at a site to be decided upon.
There will also be a minute's silence at the September 17th Transit Committee meeting, and city flags will fly at half mast on the September 18th anniversary of the tragedy.
