The routes listed below will run on the following schedules.

From Monday to Saturday, buses will operate on Enhanced Sunday Service (Regular Sunday Service with additional trips during AM and PM Peak Periods on busier routes, including earlier trips similar to regular weekday trip times).

Zum articulated buses may be assigned to other routes for more capacity as well as to support physical distancing practices.

These changes will be implemented in order to reallocate more resources to some of Brampton Transit's busier routes as they continue to limit busloads to half seated capacity for physical distancing practices.

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

On Good Friday, April 10, Brampton Transit will be operating on a Reduced Sunday/Holiday Service for Good Friday. 

The Contact Centre will be open and available to assist riders from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Brampton Transit Facilities and Customer Service counters at the terminals will be closed to the public. 

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.
