Bus Capacity and Physical Distancing

​Effective March 23, Brampton Transit has implemented the following measures to ensure physical distancing.

  • Bus loads will be limited to half seated capacity to support physical distancing. Once a bus is half-full, stops will be bypassed and passengers may be left behind. Every effort will be made to deploy buses to pick up the remaining passengers.
  • If a bus does become over-crowded, passengers will be asked to get off. The bus will not leave the stop until this happens.
  • Articulated buses will be used on busier routes to allow passengers to practice physical distancing. Züm articulated buses will be seen on regular routes. Please pay attention to the destination signs for route details.
  • To ensure there is adequate distance between everyone on the bus, including employees, seats will have yellow tape and/or posters on them to block them off. Do not sit in these seats.

Please do your part to practice physical distancing. Do not get on a bus if it is already half full and limit all non-essential travel.

Cleaning and Sanitization

Effective March 6, Brampton Transit has implemented an enhanced cleaning and sanitizing schedule.

Buses
We’ve increased the frequency of bus cleanings, wiping down all hard surfaces, Operator compartments and seats using OXIVIR, a disinfectant solution.

Terminals and Facilities
All hard surfaces in transit terminals and facilities are being sanitized on a daily basis. This cleaning and sanitizing schedule will be in place for the foreseeable future.

Brampton Transit will continue to provide updates as details become available. Follow us on Twitter @BramptonTransit to stay informed.

Travel Tips

We all need to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Protect yourself and others by taking the following precautions.

  • Limit all non-essential travel. Brampton Transit is a critical service and we are dedicated to providing a safe service to the community. Please only utilize transit service for necessary essential trips only.
  • Practice physical distancing.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose as much as possible.
  • Avoid contact with people who are ill.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands. Wash hands after coughing and sneezing.
  • Wear a non-medical mask on buses, at stops and terminals where physical distancing is difficult.
