Brampton Transit has reduced or suspended service on dozens of routes due to COVID-19 staffing shortages.

The city made the announcement last week saying staffing challenges and reduced ridership led to 20 routes temporarily cancelled until further notice and many other operating at reduced service levels.


Mayor Patrick Brown said staff are working to get Brampton Transit back to normal “as soon as possible” and that the city has been hit hard in recent weeks by “acute staffing shortages.”

On top of the service changes, severe winter weather on Monday is casuing service interruptions on Brampton Transit routes.
