USB Charging Outlets Coming To Buses In Brampton
Brampton Transit just introduced buses with USB ports — and may be adding a lot more features to busses soon.
Recently, they implemented several schedule changes, adding two new routes and a new service. As a part of this, they will be introducing a lot more buses.
Beginning September 3, Brampton Transit added routes 28 Wanless and 81 Mayfield West as well as 50A Gore Road, a new service.
Route 28 Wanless will service the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, operating from Mount Pleasant GO Station to Hurontario Street, south of Wanless Drive.
Route 81 Mayfield West offers service from Brampton to Caledon, the first bus to operate in Caledon. It will operate between the Sandalwood Loop and Newhouse Boulevard/Bonnieglen Farm on Kennedy Road in the Southfields Village neighbourhood.
Brampton Transit is also adding a new service to support the increase of rides, particularly during weekday peak periods.
Route 50A Gore Road will operate between Gore Meadows Community Centre and Humber College in the weekday AM peak. It aims to support the increased ridership to Humber College.
Brampton Transit will take inspiration from Toronto's TTC who just received 200 new redesigned, clean diesel buses featuring USB ports for charging smart devices, three individually operated flip-down seats to create space for strollers and large passenger belongings, and two passenger information displays. They also introduced LCD screens that display the following stops and operator IDs.
Brampton currently has nine buses in service with USB charging ports and all future buses will come with the charging ports. The port are below and in between the seats.
