What Do You Think of Public Transit in Brampton?
It's no secret that Brampton Transit is a rapidly growing transit system - it's actually the fastest growing in Canada. Now, the transit system is facing an unprecedented increase in ridership, projected at 27 million for 2017.
And the City of Brampton is asking residents to help shape its future ahead of September 2018 service improvements by gathering feedback on proposed route and schedule changes.
“Brampton Transit riders and residents are invited to provide feedback and help shape public transit in Brampton ahead of September's planned Service Improvements,” said the city in a recent statement.
“Brampton Transit staff will be at various locations throughout the city presenting proposed route and schedule changes and gathering public input before plans are finalized.”
Some schedules were already adjusted on Monday March 5, and more will be adjusted on Monday April 30, but September is typically when more drastic changes impact the schedules.
Several routes are being examined, including the 52/52A, the 29/29A, the 57, the new Airport Zum that’s on its way, and many, many more. Some routes could be realigned, some new routes and buses have been proposed, and ultimately, Brampton Transit is planning for service up until 2022.
So if you have ideas or suggestions to get Brampton commuting better, now is your chance to speak up!
