An enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedule remains in effect. It is Brampton Transit’s goal to disinfect all hard surfaces, operator compartments and seats every 48 hours. The majority of buses are sanitized every 24 hours. Facilities and terminals that have hard surfaces are wiped down and sanitized on a daily basis

The City urges riders to continue to maintain physical distancing at terminals, and at bus stops, even while wearing a mask, as much as possible. Riders are also reminded to carry their own personal disinfectant when travelling, such as hand sanitizer or wipes, wash their hands often, and cough or sneeze into their elbow. If sick, please refrain from riding transit, get tested at the nearest COVID-19 assessment site and follow public health instructions.
