Changes coming to Brampton Transit routes as City needs input from riders

Published March 22, 2023 at 8:47 am

The City is looking to hear from Brampton Transit riders and residents to help shape the future of transit routes and schedules in Brampton.

Brampton Transit is holding a series of open houses starting next week to highlight proposed route and schedule changes across the transit system and allow residents and riders to give their thoughts and input on the changes.

Starting March 28, the Brampton Transit team will be at the following locations across the city highlighting the proposed route and schedule changes, and gathering public input.

The first session starts next Tuesday at the Cassie Campbell Community Centre, but there will be two other sessions over the course of a week to give riders a chance to give their input.
