​​​​​​​​​​​​Effective Monday, June 24, Brampton Transit will be removing the existing Route 501C branch of the Züm Queen service that connects directly to York University via Highway 407.  On this date, all Route 501 Züm Queen service will operate exclusively on Highway 7 via the York Region Transit (YRT) Rapidway. Passengers destined to York University can transfer to the TTC Subway at no additional cost (no double fare).

This change is a largely a result of the implementation of the Province’s One Fare program, which allows riders free transfers between our service and the TTC Subway at the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and takes advantage of the Province’s significant investment in higher order infrastructure such as the York Region Transit (YRT) Rapidway and the TTC Subway, which the 501C Züm Queen largely duplicates. This change will also result in substantial operational s​avings but significantly reducing the number of Brampton Transit buses that travel on Highway 407.

To better accommodate anticipated ridership demand on the Route 501 Züm Queen, we will be increasing service levels on the route between Downtown Brampton and the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.

Effective June 24, 2024
