Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Brampton Transit is continuing to take measures in order to safely serve the community.

As a result, effective April 4, 2020, the following weekend bus service will be changed until further notice.

The following Saturday routes will be affected.

  • 32 Father Tobin - service cancelled; will continue to operate Monday-Friday 
  • 33 Peter Robertson - service cancelled; will continue to operate Monday-Friday
  • 56 Kingknoll - service cancelled; will continue to operate Monday-Friday 
  • 52 McMurchy - frequency reduced to every 50 minutes all day 

The following Sunday routes will be affected.

  • 32 Father Tobin - service cancelled; will continue to operate Monday-Friday
  • 56 Kingknoll - service cancelled; will continue to operate Monday-Friday
  • 52 McMurchy - frequency reduced to every 50 minutes all day 

These changes will be implemented in order to re-allocate additional resources to some of Brampton Transit's busier routes.

Busloads will continue to be limited to half seated capacity in order to support physical distancing practices.

An enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedule continues to remain in effect.

It is Brampton Transit's goal to disinfect all hard surfaces, operator compartments and seats every 48 hours and uses are currently sanitized every 24 hours.

Facilities and terminals that have hard surfaces are wiped down and sanitized on a daily basis and riders are encouraged to carry their own personal disinfectant when travelling, such as hand sanitizer or wipes and are advised to wash their hands often.

The City of Brampton is working closely with its partners at Peel Public Health and the Brampton Emergency Management Office to continue to monitor risks.
