​BRAMPTON, ON – The City of Brampton is offering free, family-friendly bus tours on Tuesday, August 21 and Thursday, August 23, to share the City’s history and services with new residents.

The City has offered this award-winning community program since 2009, through a partnership between the City’s recreation division, Brampton Transit and Brampton Library.

Breakdown of the three-hour tour:
• Visit a community centre to learn about recreation opportunities and facility amenities
