Published March 9, 2021 at 11:40 am


Due to an active Peel Public Health COVID-19 community investigation, there will be impacts to Brampton Transit’s service levels effective March 9, 2021.

To help protect the health and safety of employees and the community, Peel Public Health has directed transit operators be tested for COVID-19 and that medical grade masks be mandatory for transit operators.

Brampton Transit provided employees on-site testing for COVID-19 at its facilities. In some cases, employees may be required to self-isolate, which may affect Brampton Transit’s level of service. All efforts will be made to provide the best possible service under the current circumstances.

Those who are riding buses should continue following public health recommendations, including staying home if they are a close contact or have symptoms, wearing a tight fitting mask in public spaces and avoiding lowering their masks for eating or drinking while commuting unless it is a medical emergency.

For more information on the active COVID-19 community investigation, please contact Peel Public Health.
