Update: Brampton Transit PIC Changes to the Route 53



 

Brampton Transit provides you with the results of the public engagement regarding the Route 53.  We had a great turnout for the PIC last Thursday with over 130 residents casting their vote for their preferred option. We also received a further 79 votes online. Overall, we are very pleased with the level of engagement.

 

The table below outlines the total number of votes for each option. As you can see, Option 4 was the clear winner with 83% of the residents preferring to go back to the original route alignment. We have attached a copy of the PIC boards for your reference.

Based on this result, Brampton Transit is recommending to implement the Option 4 routing effective October 31st. This will allow us sufficient time to make the necessary schedule adjustments and also help communicate this change to the area residents.

 

Again, we would like to thank you for your input and support of this process. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
