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.
