Additionally, seniors can now apply online for their Brampton Transit senior ID cards.

Applicants are required to complete the online form and attach their proof of age, Brampton residency and photo to be used on their cards. The card will then be mailed to the applicant. 

It is important to note that all active senior ID card expiry dates have been waived indefinitely.

Seniors can continue to use their expired cards until further notice.

If a senior has lost their Brampton Transit Senior ID card and require a replacement, they can contact the Senior Card program at 905-874-2750 ext. 16253.

An enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedule remains in effect. It is Brampton Transit's goal to disinfect all hard surfaces, operator compartments and seats every 48 hours.

The majority of buses are currently sanitized every 24 hours. Facilities and terminals that have hard surfaces are wiped down and sanitized on a daily basis.

The City urges riders to continue to maintain physical distancing at terminals and at bus stops, even while wearing a mask.

Passengers are also reminded to carry their own personal disinfectant when travelling, such as hand sanitizer or wipes, wash their hands often, and cough or sneeze into their elbow.

If you're feeling sick, please refrain from riding transit, get tested at the nearest COVID-19 assessment site and follow public health instructions.

Riders are reminded that non-medical masks are mandatory on buses and terminals, with guidance from Peel Public Health.

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.
