Service changes affecting Brampton transit schedules amid COVID-19 outbreak

in
 

Services changes will be in effect for Brampton Transit until further notice, effective Friday, April 17 as a response to COVID-19.

The following routes will be back in service from Monday to Friday to support access to health care facilities and employment areas in Brampton and to improve access and connections to other Brampton Transit services.

Best efforts will be made to sustain these services with the resources they have.

Route 8 Centre will have access to Bramalea City Centre, Peel Memorial Centre and Brampton Gateway Terminal with a 50-minute frequency.

The first trip will depart at 5:00 a.m. from Bramalea Terminal and the first trip will depart at 5:50 a.m. from Brampton Gateway Terminal.

Route 9 Vodden will have access to Mount Pleasant GO, Bramalea Terminal and employment areas in the east end with a 60-minute frequency.

The first eastbound trip will depart at 5:00 a.m. from Mount Pleasant GO and the first westbound trip will depart at 5:57 a.m. from Williams Parkway and Edvac Drive.

Route 52 McMurchy will have access to Downtown Terminal and Brampton Gateway Terminal with a 50-minute frequency.

The first northbound trip will depart at 5:00 a.m. from Brampton Gateway Terminal and the first southbound trip will depart at 5:20 a.m. from Downtown Terminal.

Additional resources have been allocated to some of Brampton Transit's busier routes as we continue to limit busloads to half seated capacity to support physical distancing practices.

Their goal is to provide as much service as resources allow and to ensure all areas of the city have reasonable access to public transit.  

An enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedule remains in effect amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

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

Facilities and terminals that have hard surfaces are wiped down and sanitized on a daily basis.

Riders are encouraged to carry their own personal disinfectant when travelling, such as hand sanitizers and are reminded 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.
