A disabled train at Bayview Station prompted another morning of backups and delays for transit riders, and comes after two consecutive days of door-related problems on the LRT line.

The train went out of service around 7:30 a.m., Thursday. Replacement buses were brought in, eastbound only between Tunney's Pasture and Rideau stations, to take passengers downtown.

OC Transpo said full service was restored just before 8 a.m., but warned riders to expect delays.
