Riders are reminded to check route schedules before travelling. Terminal building hours at Bramalea, Brampton Gateway and Downtown Terminals are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Trinity Common Terminal remains closed. For customer service hours at the terminals, visit here.

Senior ID renewal applications are being accepted online. Visit bramptontranist.com under Fares and complete the renewal application form. Your new Senior ID card will be mailed to you.

While COVID-19 remains a threat, the following safety measures are in effect:

  • Masks are mandatory at terminals and on board buses, masks should be tightly-fitted and cover your nose, mouth and chin at all times.
  • Maintain physical distancing at terminals and at bus stops, even while wearing a mask.
  • Carry your own personal disinfectant when travelling, such as hand sanitizer or wipes, and wash your hands often.
  • If you are sick, please refrain from riding transit. Be sure to get tested at the nearest COVID-19 assessment site and follow public health instructions.

An enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedule remains in effect. It is Brampton Transit’s goal to disinfect all hard surfaces, operator compartments and seats every 48 hours. The majority of buses are currently sanitized every 24 hours. Facilities and terminals that have hard surfaces are wiped down and sanitized on a daily basis.
