War veterans can ride Brampton Transit for free this Remembrance Day and for the entire year with a special pass.
As in previous years, the City of Brampton is offering free rides to war veterans on Nov. 11. Veterans who wear medals, a beret, uniform or blazer on Remembrance Day, don’t pay on Brampton Transit on Friday.
Veterans can also apply to get a Brampton Transit Veteran Pass, which allows veterans to ride for free year-round. To qualify for a pass, the veteran must be a permanent resident of Brampton and be a veteran, as defined by Veteran Affairs Canada.
A veteran is defined as “any former member of the Canadian Armed Forces who successfully underwent basic training and is honourably released”.
Veterans need to provide proof of residency and proof of service as a former member of the Canadian Armed Forces who successfully underwent basic training and is honourably released (e.g. certificate of service, discharge papers, letter from regiment Commander, etc.) to get the Veteran Pass.
For more information on how to apply for the pass, visit the Brampton Transit website.
