The City of Brampton operates and repairs City-owned traffic signals and related electrical devices, such as pedestrian push-button devices and flashing 40 km/h school zone signs.
The City uses a traffic computer system to coordinate traffic signals at City, Region of Peel, Ministry of Transportation, and 407 ETR intersections. Our goal is to move the greatest number of vehicles through a network or small group of signalized intersections with minimal stops and delays in a safe and efficient manner.
A well-managed coordinated traffic control system reduces fuel consumption, travel time, traffic congestion, accidents and pollution. To reduce energy consumption and increase efficiency, the City also uses LED lights in all of its traffic signals.

Signal co-ordination is the timing through a group or network of signals on major streets to optimize the movement of traffic. To coordinate the signals, the following factors must be considered:
- Distance between signalized intersections
- Pedestrian traffic
- On-street parking
- Bus stops
- Traffic volume
- Speed limit
- Left turn signals
